Storms, high winds cut power to 35,000

        A storm turned Cincinnati skies black for a few hours Friday afternoon, and when the clouds moved out, thousands of residents remained in the dark.

        The remnants of Hurricane Lili gusted through Southwest Ohio and Northern Kentucky toppling trees, blowing down power lines and cutting power to about 35,000 Cinergy customers.

        “We are down to about 350 customers that are still out,” Cinergy spokesman Steve Brash said at 10 p.m. Friday. “Most of those should be picked up by midnight.”

        Mr. Brash said the damage from the storm was caused mostly by strong winds. Counties to the north, such as Butler and Warren, were mostly unaffected.
