AEP MEDIA ADVISORY from the morning of Saturday, June 30:


At this time, more than 660,000 customers are without power across the AEP

Ohio service territory. This storm is a catastrophic event, affecting not

only Ohio but much of eastern U.S. This storm has left millions of people

without power across the affected areas, including 1.4 million across

AEP’s eastern service territory.


AEP Ohio is in the early stages of damage assessment. At this point, it is

expected that restoration will continue for at least 5-7 days, with the

majority of customers to be restored in that time frame. This estimate

could change if additional damaging weather passes through the service



Meteorologists are forecasting the possibility of additional severe

weather with high wind potentials (in the 50-to 60 mph range for Saturday)

through Tuesday and expect temperatures to remain in the mid-90s

throughout this period and through the end of next week.


Restoration times will be provided and updated on an ongoing basis as

assessment is completed. AEP Ohio expects to have the initial restoration

estimates late this afternoon.
