CINCINNATI -- Federal Emergency Management Agency officials are working with state officials and relief workers to determine the biggest needs in Ohio two days after severe storms swept through the state.
The storms knocked out power to 1 million customers Friday evening. By late Sunday the customers without power numbered 447,789.
President Barack Obama on Saturday declared a federal emergency in Ohio. His action followed a request by Gov. John Kasich, who had declared a state emergency and called out the National Guard.
American Electric Power has about 435,000 customers without power and Duke Energy has about 12,789 in Ohio without electricity.
