576 customers lost electric service around 10:10 Sunday morning in southern Hardin and northern Hancock Counties.
There is some good news, AEP reported that service has been restored to residents in Dunkirk.
In addition, 1269 customers in the Ada area lost electricity last night. Power in that area was restored earlier today.
A handful of customers are without service in the Kenton area, and the power has been restored.
