NORTHEAST OHIO — Overnight storms left thousands of Northeast Ohio residents without power Sunday morning.
Storms rolled through our northern counties Sunday morning producing damaging winds, hail, heavy rain and a lightning show.
60 to 70 mph power winds caused downed trees, wires and power lines.
These storms have currently left more than 25,000 FirstEnergy customers without power, with the most impacted areas being Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, Geauga and Lake counties.
According to the company, residents in Ashtabula County are experiencing the largest number of outages, at over 15,000, followed by those in Cuyahoga County at over 5,000.
