Power restored after planned citywide outage in Oberlin


OBERLIN, Ohio (WJW) — Power was restored after a planned citywide outage in the city of Oberlin.

The city says FirstEnergy informed them that they discovered a failed cross-arm brace on the 69,000-volt pole line between Quarry Road and Pyle Road, which supplies power to the whole city.

FirstEnergy took these lines out of service Sunday morning to make repairs, according to the city.

The city says emergency services were not interrupted during the power outage.

If you are still without power please call 774-1061.
