Partial power has been restored to the Ohio University Athens campus.

No word yet on how many buildings were affected.


The Ohio University Athens campus is experiencing a power outage right now.

No word on how many buildings are without power, but the outage did affect the Board of Trustees meeting at Walter Hall.

Laterns were used to keep the meeting going.

But, power was restored around noon.

University officials are asking people on campus to turn off all non-essential electrical devices.

"If you have electricity now, please power down anything you can. It will help to restore power," says Vice President of Student Affairs Kent Smith.

We will update with more information as it becomes available.
