LAKEWOOD, Ohio -- Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald on Friday provided an update on post-Hurricane Sandy clean-up efforts in Cuyahoga County.

FitzGerald was joined by Lakewood Mayor Mike Summers and other county officials, all of whom detailed the power outage situation, shelter locations and other disruptions since the superstorm.

Summers noted that 25% of Lakewood residents lost power when the remnants of Hurricane Sandy blew through Northeast Ohio. Since then, CEI employees have worked around the clock to bring the outage number from 15,000 to 6,400 in the city.

FitzGerald says utility workers have some heavy lifting to do, cutting and removing downed trees from yards and homes.

The clean-up efforts will help restore power to the more than 56,300 customers in Cuyahoga County without power. All residents should have power by Monday night, FitzGerald said.

Residents are encouraged to call 211 for help, in addition to contacting one of many emergency shelters that have opened since the storm hit.
