COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) –Electricity customers throughout central Ohio can keep up to date on when their power may come back.
AEP is the provider for most customers in central Ohio.
To track when power may be restored, AEP customers can use the company’s Ohio Outage Map. Users can find their neighborhood, or using a dropdown menu on the left side of the screen, view the map by county or zip code. Once the customer finds their location, and if there is an outage, click on the outage icon and a bar on the right-hand side of the screen will appear, letting you know how many customers are affected by that outage, when the outage was reported, and an estimated time power will be restored.
The other major provider for central Ohio, South Central Power, also has a map customers can use to track outages. Serving mostly the south-central part of Ohio, the map also allows users to search by location or break down the outages by county by clicking the “County” button on the right side of the key on the left-hand side of the map.
Ohio Edison customers in rural parts of north-central Ohio can also track outages using that company’s outage map, which can be found by clicking here. The map does allow users to search by county; however, it does not present the information in map form. Instead, it opens an alphabetized list of counties it serves and the number of customers affected by outages.
