About 83,000 Ohio households and businesses are still without electricity three days after an ice storm struck the southern part of the state. Today, it's Scioto County with the largest number of outages --- more than 14,000, according to the Public Utilities Commission. Kim Carver is director of the Scioto County Emergency Management Agency. She says the county has two shelters set up for people to stay warm in and get food, but most people without electricity have chosen not to go there. In an interview with Ohio Public Radio's Bill Cohen, Carver says most area residents are riding out the storm either with friends or in their own houses with some kind of alternative heating source.
Utility companies say it could be Tuesday before electricity is restored to everyone.
