CLEVELAND - Monday evening saw a line of thunderstorms that were scattered in nature, but some of them became a little wild. (The wind gusted to 57 mph  at the Cuyahoga County Airport at 4:15 p.m.)

Flooding was the leftover problem from the storms Tuesday morning. Fox 8 cameras captured flooding at W117th and Berea, as well as high water at Brookpark Road and W130th.

Crossburn Avenue in Cleveland will remain closed Tuesday morning from W130th to W134th until 4 utility poles can be replaced. The poles fell on homes and cars on the street.

Those storms left thousands of people in the dark throughout northeast Ohio.  According to FirstEnergy, on Monday, there were more than 6,000 customers without electricity in the county with many outages in Brookfield Township, Fowler Township, Kinsman Township, Liberty Township and Vienna Township, as of 9:15 p.m.
