HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- AEP continues to make progress in restoring power to thousands of customers in the area after overnight storms.
By 8 p.m. Friday, power had been restored to the vast majority of customers. Still, more than 4,600 customers remained without power -- with Cabell and Wayne counties having the most people in the dark.
Power had been restored to people affected in Boone and Kanawha counties.
Officials say most areas will have service restored late Friday night.
Late Friday afternoon, an AEP spokesperson told WSAZ.com that they restored power to 21,000 customers Friday, but still have 11,000 without service.
But the hardest hit areas, which as mentioned include Cabell and Wayne counties, may not have service restored until Saturday night or Sunday.
AEP officials say the high winds knocked down utility poles, and caused trees to fall into power lines.
Below are the latest outage numbers, as of 5:15 p.m., according to AEP's website:
