BLACKLICK, OH (WCMH) — Thousands of east Columbus AEP Ohio customers may be without power Sunday morning due to a destructive rodent.
AEP Ohio crews are working at a power station in Blacklick after a squirrel damaged equipment Sunday morning, causing areas near Blacklick and Gahanna to lose power.
About 2,000 customers are affected, according to AEP. The power should be restored by noon.
UPDATE: AEP Ohio now says a bird caused the outage.
