COLUMBUS (WCMH) — AEP reported power outages Thursday affecting northwest Columbus and parts of Delaware County.
A social-media post at 12:25 p.m. said the cause of the outage and an estimated restoration time were not available. AEP’s outage map showed 45,000 customers being affected. By 12:45, the number was down to 31,000, and by 1 p.m., 15,000. As of 1:45 p.m., it was below 4,000.
AEP said power had been restored to all customers as of 1:30. It said the outage occurred after a piece of equipment failed in the station feeding power to the area. Crews are investigating what caused that failure.
