As of 4:15 p.m., power has now been restored to all AEP customers in Columbiana County.
Just over 3,800 Columbiana County AEP customers are without power for the second time in less than 24 hours.
According to AEP spokesperson Carmen Prati-Miller, a tripped relay caused a second outage early this morning.
Prati-Miller tells 7news that it has crews on the scene, but has no time for restoration. Columbiana County Emergency Management may open shelters if repairs go into the evening hours.
