UPDATE:

According to a spokesperson with AEP, about half of the 450 customers in the Big Grave Creek are still without power.

It’s now expected to be back on by 7:00 p.m. Monday.

Crews have been working around the clock since wind caused trees to fall on lines yesterday.

Originally more than 1600 people were without power.

There is a warming shelter still on standby, but call ahead of time so they can make sure it’s open. The number is 304-843-1500.

Some AEP customers in Marshall County could be without power until at least noon on Monday.

The outage is in the Big Grave Creek area, and earlier on Sunday, about 1,600 people did not have power. Nearly 450 customers were without power on Sunday evening.

Carmen Prati-Miller with AEP said there is significant damage to the equipment in the Big Grave Creek area, which is the cause of the power outage. The high winds reportedly caused trees to fall on about five sections of line between the Big Grave and Loudenville substations.

The Moundsville Volunteer Fire Department is on standby as a warming center, but anyone who intends to use it must call ahead to ensure they have enough time to open. If you need assistance call 304-843-1500.
