I've just checked my local online news station and even many local state public libraries are also closed without any power. It may take up to a week to restore many residential and commercial customers' service as reported by the local news source.
So, please, be patient Warriors with any other fellow Warriors that reside in Ohio as they may be now without power from the remnants of hurricane Ike.
My power was out yesterday and luckily enough, I was on one of the "main power grids" and so I now have power and can post this.
Thankfully, there have been no reports yet of any injuries or deaths caused by the high winds. I can tell you that there is plenty of damage though across the state and trees were literally ripped from the ground.
If you want to see what's happening, you can go to WBNS 10TV : Home - WBNS-10TV, Central Ohio's News Leader , a local Columbus, OH news station to view further details.
Hang in there my Ohio brethren.
