Should the county emergency management agency office duties be a separate office?
AEP Ohio has eyes on the weather
Wednesday, June 12, 2013 5:08 PM

GAHANNA – AEP Ohio, a unit of American Electric Power, constantly has its eyes on the weather. The company’s internal meteorologists are monitoring the approaching storm that is expected to hit Ohio later today.

Our meteorologists agree with area weather forecasts that there is potential for this front to produce a squall line that could affect much of the AEP Ohio’s service territory, as well as neighboring states. This squall line could produce severe weather accompanied by high winds gusting above 60 mile per hour, potentially causing widespread power outages in affected areas.

AEP Ohio crews are prepared to respond throughout the company’s service territory, and the company is identifying the availability of additional resources.

We urge our customers to prepare as well. Outage preparation and safety tips are available under Outages & Problems on aepohio.com. When major storms hit, AEP Ohio posts the latest information available on aepohio.com, and customers may follow us on twitter and facebook.

AEP Ohio provides electricity to nearly 1.5 million customers of major AEP subsidiaries Ohio Power Company in Ohio and Wheeling Power Company in the northern panhandle of West Virginia. AEP Ohio is based in Gahanna, and is a unit of American Electric Power. News and information about AEP Ohio can be found at AEPohio.com.
