UPDATE 12:16 p.m. Latest numbers from American Electric Power indicate only eight counties still have customers who remain without power.
According to the company's website, as of 10 a.m. about 10,000 customers of the original 660,000 knocked out by the June 29 storm are still without electricity.
A majority of the customers are in the Southeast Ohio region:
Athens County: 742 customers
Hocking County: 1,489 customers
Muskingum County: 1,834
Jackson County: 110
Guernsey County: 380
Washington County: 110
AEP says Franklin and Licking counties were two of the three hardest hit when violent winds ripped across the state 10 days ago. As of 10 a.m., each had less than 1,000 customers without power.
Restoration maps show residents can expect power to be turned back on any time between Monday by midnight and Wednesday by midnight.
Power is coming back to much of Ohio more than a week after violent storms hit the state June 29 and again July 4 and 5.
