A multitude of Cleveland Public Power customers are also still remain in the dark, with no time frame given on when that will change:

More than 30 power lines were downed in the region last night, which triggered several road closures, and sparked two house fires in Cleveland Saturday night.

Lake County, which was battered by the storm, is seeking addition help from outside the county as crews report it’s some of the worst outages they’ve seen in years.

Mentor and Eastlake were hit hard, as several trees fell onto houses, residential properties and power lines.

Many cities no the West side are dealing with outages as well.

Avon Police report downed power lines have shut down Stoney Ridge Road and Julian Street. Crews aren’t sure when crews will be able to reopen the roads.

Residents are reporting some households in North Olmsted may be without power for days due to power line and tree damage.
