Windy weather hits Ohio
(2008-09-15)
(WOUB) - At least three people have been killed by fallen trees and more than a million Ohio customers remain without power after yesterday's powerful visit from the remnants of Hurricane Ike.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources says two motorcyclists were killed Sunday when a tree toppled onto them in Hueston Woods State Park.

A woman in Mt. Healthy, Ohio, also was killed Sunday when a tree fell onto her southwest Ohio home.

Gusts that reached 78 miles per hour ripped roofs from buildings and caused massive power outages throughout the state.

Duke Energy spokeswoman Kathy Meinke says it could take a week to restore service to the hardest-hit areas.

Cincinnati and Columbus public schools have canceled today's classes.
