AEP reports western Ohio among hardest hit in Ohio

AEP provided the Icon with the following power restoration update as of the morning of July 2:

Here is the latest outage restoration update available.  We continue to
work hard and safe to get power restored to all our customers and have done so with over 200,000 being put back into service.  Last night's storm caused a temporary set back, and continued unstable weather creates the possibility for more outages, but we will stick with this until we're done.

Several majestic Ada trees couldn't stand up to the June 29 high winds

Some of Ada's oldest residents - trees that have watched this community experience World Wars, the Great Depression, and even the turn of an earlier century - couldn't survive the June 29 severe weather that struck Ohio.

Another victim of the high winds wasthe Ada Baptist Church, which has a construction project underway.

Several  aftermath storm photos are posted below. The Icon invites viewers to send photos and stories of their experiences on June 29.

By Sunday afternoon Ada curbsides were piled with branches that fell on Friday.
