More than 1,000 area homes and businesses lost power yesterday morning because of weather-related problems.
In South Toledo, about 1,000 Toledo Edison customers were without power from 12:40 to 3 a.m. The outage was caused by lightning, said Chuck Krueger, an area manager for the utility. Toledo Edison had 600 more customers in scattered local communities who lost power.
