Description:

The number of power outages is at about 40,000 with a drop in Cuyahoga County but a sharp jump in Geauga County, according to the FirstEnergy outage map. There are more than 15,000 people in Geauga County without power, which is up from 13,636 earlier. The number of outages in Cuyahoga County dropped from more than 35,000 to 32,710. Mark Durbin from FirstEnergy reminds people to stay far away from downed power lines. The trouble is coming from wet, heavy snow accumulating on trees that still have many of their leaves. No estimated time has been given for full restoration but crews are currently working on the issues.
