More than 2,000 without power in Northern Panhandle from overnight ice storm
A storm that initially called for 6-9 inches of snow ended up instead producing several hours of freezing rain in the Ohio Valley Monday into Tuesday, making travel overnight tricky. The morning commute — at least on the main roads — is an easy one as of now, though 2,000 residents in Ohio and Marshall counties remain without power Tuesday morning.
According to Appalachian Power’s outage map, the outages are in the Valley Grove area of Ohio County and also along Oglebay Drive. In Marshall County, there are scattered outages reported along U.S. 250 near New Vrindaban, and more than 100 customers are out in the Adeline area south of Glen Easton.
Appalachian Power is actively working on the outages. There is no planned restoration time.
Tuesday morning also brought additional downed power lines across roads, as several area police departments received calls as ice and tree limbs brought down lines.
