Storm knocks out power in nearly 6,000 homes



The Cincinnati Enquirer

A brief but severe storm that swept through Greater Cincinnati on Monday morning caused power failures for about 5,900 Cinergy customers.

Cinergy restored power to all but about 370 of those customers by Monday evening, said Steve Brash, Cinergy spokesman.

Most of the power outages occurred in a small portion of western Clermont County and along the Interstate 75 corridor in Hamilton County, he said.

Monday's rain caused some early concern in St. Clair Township, a Butler County area that was hard hit by the June 14-15 floods.

The levels of Four Mile Creek along Warwick Road and Seven Mile Creek along West Elkton Road rose rapidly, said Barb Schick, St. Clair Township administrative assistant, but there was no flooding.
