COLUMBUS (WCMH) — AEP says more than 41,000 people remain without power in Ohio after strong winds and storms swept through over the weekend. 

According to the AEP, workers continue to work on restoring power to 41,100 Ohio customers who lost electricity after winter storm Quiana moved through the region. 

More than 100 electric poles were downed during the storm.
