LYNDHURST, Ohio - Strong storms that pushed through the area Friday night left heavy damage behind in many communities.

In Lyndhurst, Mayor Patrick Ward is working with other volunteers at the Community Center.

They're keeping the facility open through 8 p.m. to give people a place to get a hot meal and charge their phones.

Thousands across Northeast Ohio are without power.

There's also serious damage reported in Cleveland Heights.

The community reports many roads are still impassable and has been working to clear streets of debris and downed trees since last night.

There are no reports of injuries.

Mayfield Heights is also opening its community center from 6 to 9 p.m. so people can get phones charged and cool off as needed.
