CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Parts of Northeast Ohio were still without electricity Tuesday morning, days after Sunday night's severe weather and tornadoes moved swiftly through the area.
Officials from FirstEnergyCorp say those impacted could be without power through Wednesday.
As of 5:30 a.m. Tuesday, FirstEnergyCorp reported 18,259 customers across Ohio were left without power.
The counties with the most outages include:
- Ashtabula - 554 customers affected
- Cuyahoga - 2,470 customers affected
- Geauga - 1,536 customers affected
- Huron - 851 customers affected
- Portage - 1,143 customers affected
- Summit - 9,919 customers affected
The power outages also impacted several local polling places for Tuesday's general elections. Several Board of Elections were required to make last-minute decisions to move polling locations.
FirstEnergy spokesperson Mark Durbin said it could take days for power crews to restore power to all of the impacted neighborhoods. The biggest issues are the downed trees that brought down the power wires, and the leaves that are covering the downed wires.
Children should be extra careful outside near downed trees or lines because they could still be active.
