During one of the hottest stretches on record this is the map of outages in the Cincinnati Duke Energy service area. Yesterday's storm couldn't have come at a worse time - and notice the large number of blue dots in the Fort Thomas area.
This afternoon areas in Fort Thomas that did have power for most of the day went back out again. Grand from 471 to Highland was one such area and there were others.
Duke Energy has indicated that these outages could be in place until July 2nd - 2 more days of blistering heat without air conditioning can be dangerous.
Please be sure to check on elderly neighbors and provide water or shelter if needed. And if you are one of the lucky ones in the Fort, Campbell County, or Cincinnati area then count your blessings.
