Though the chances are slim, we might not be done with this nasty weather yet.

The storms that slammed the area from yesterday afternoon through the early hours of this morning brought heavy rain and high winds that downed a number of trees and power lines.

Due to those effects, nearly eight thousand SWEPCO customers are without electricity this morning.
