LORAIN, OH (WOIO) - On Wednesday, Republic Steel announced it will temporarily lay off around 200 workers from its plant in Lorain. 

The company sent the following statement:

"Republic Steel is reducing our manning levels at our Lorain Hot End Operations due to the declining conditions in the oil and gas markets as well as the reduced demand from our customer. Republic is temporarily laying off approximately 200 hourly and salaried employees. Republic is working with the local USW leadership to minimize the layoffs."

Representatives did not know how long the layoffs will last.
