Governor DeWine Issues Statement On Power Outages


(Columbus, OH) -- Governor Mike DeWine is suggesting some questions for the upcoming Public Utilities Commission review of last week's power outages.  

In a statement released yesterday, the governor says the commission should ask what the state's utilities are doing to prevent future issues. He also says PUCO should look into whether customers were adequately informed of planned power shut-offs.

DeWine says he looks forward to seeing the commission's findings.

Mid-Ohio Food Collective Seeing Record Demand After Lengthy Power Outages

Leaders at Mid-Ohio Food Collective say they are seeing increased demand following last week's power outages. The organization typically serves around 70,000 Franklin County families per month, but now that number is close to 80,000.

Senior Vice President Mike Hochron notes that increased prices on fuel and groceries were already placing a strain on many people's budgets prior to losing food in the outage. For more information on assistance or how to give, visit
