Herhusband stayed at home,where Friday’s storm hadtorn the top off their tallpine tree and left it in theiryard.“It looked like somebodypulled a Christmas treedown and laid it in our yard,instead of putting it by thecurb,” said Driscoll, 28.About 420,000 AEPcustomers were withoutpower Monday throughoutthe southern two-thirds of the state. More than half of its customers in each of 19counties, largely in south-east and central Ohio, hadno power.Dayton Power and Lightplanned free ice giveawaysat several locations to helpsome of its 17,000 custom-ers without power.Duke Energy had about8,900 customers still affected.Gov.

Out-of-state reinforce-ments were limited by bigneeds in Washington D.C.and neighboring states thatwere also hit by storms.Ohio officials confirmedone storm death. A 70-year-old woman died Friday eve-ning in Muskingum Countywhen a barn collapsed aftershe had gone to check onanimals during the storm.State Treasurer JoshMandel said small busi-ness owners, farmers andother Ohioans might be eli-gible for interest rate reduc-tions on loans to recover orrebuild from the storm dam-age.
