High winds produce scattered Ohio power outages

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Strong winds are causing power outages
in parts of the state including more than 6,000 customers without
electricity in southwest Ohio.
Mansfield recorded a gust of wind
topping 50 mph Friday afternoon, while a 64-foot brick smokestack was
toppled on the campus of Otterbein University in central Ohio. No one
was injured.
One person was taken to the hospital in Columbus after winds uprooted a large tree on the city’s west
side.
Friday’s
warm-up with temperatures in the 60s was expected to slowly give way to
another cold front with temperatures falling into the 30s by Sunday
with some snow possible.
