New Years outage due to maintenance
By William Kincaid
More than 6,100 Dayton Power & Light customers in Mercer and Auglaize counties were left without power on Tuesday afternoon, company spokeswoman Mary Ann Kabel said.
Also, DP&L moved to undertake emergency maintenance to a substation feeding Celina, leading to a power outage between 9 p.m. and 10:20 p.m. in Celina on New Year's Eve. The emergency work was unrelated to area blackouts, Kabel said. [More]
