An ice storm downed trees, caused widespread traffic delays and left thousands of residents without power across the Miami Valley Thursday morning.

As of 11:15 a.m., 18,704 Dayton Power and Light customers were without power.

In a statement, a company spokesperson said many power outages were caused by heavy ice bringing down tree limbs onto power equipment.

Downed trees and icy road conditions also led to a number of traffic incidents Thursday morning.

The Ohio Department of Transportation began sending plow trucks onto area roadways at 3 a.m. Thursday.

She grew up in Sacramento, California, but spent summers with her grandmother in Dayton before moving here as a young adult. Amatul spoke with Dayton Metro Library volunteer interviewer, Carol Jackson.


21 years ago an author came through Dayton on book tour. He was traveling with his wife. They were driving from city to city-he doesn't fly. James Lee Burke had just published "Cimarron Rose," the first book in a new series he was writing that featured Billy Bob Holland.

I had no idea when Jim walked into the studio that this interview would mark the genesis of what has become a long running conversation. 21 years later I have interviewed James Lee Burke more times than any other author.

A recent Dayton survey finds nearly a third of Daytonians aged 18 to 34 are “totally unlikely” to remain in the city for the next five years. A new initiative aims to reverse this trend by matching more college students with Miami Valley internships.

Advocates hope connecting young people to jobs early on could boost the chances they’ll stay and start careers in Dayton down the road.
