Strong storms producing high winds, hail, and heavy rain knocked out power to at least 206,627 customers across Ohio and the Mid-Atlantic states on Wednesday, June 8, according to information from the Department of Energy (DOE).
As of 3:30 p.m. EDT Wednesday, 100,374 customers remained without power. Wind gusts of up to 66 miles-per-hour (mph) were reported, knocking down trees and power lines.
