Halloween storm knocks out power to hundreds

Fallen trees knocked down power lines across the area Thursday night.

Strong winds swept through Ohio and Michigan Thursday night, bringing down trees and power lines across both states.

Seneca County was the hardest hit in Ohio, with one report of ten poles down near the sheriff's office, at US 224 and SR 100. There were also reports of a barn down and a trailer blown off its foundation on SR 18.

Over 200 Toledo Edison customers in Lucas County remain without power Friday morning after power lines were blown over. Between 500 and 1,500 customers in Sylvania Township, near the intersection of Crissey and Bancroft, lost power due to downed trees and power lines.

A few hundred people were also left in the dark in Tontogany and Haskins. As of late Thursday night, only a few dozen homes remained without power in that area.

High wind are expected to continue into late Friday morning.
