Power outage in Cuyahoga County caused by animal


CLEVELAND, Ohio (WJW) – Several thousand FirstEnergy customers were without power Tuesday morning ahead of what is expected to be one of the hottest days of the year.

FirstEnergy said about 8,000 customers in North Royalton and Broadview Heights were affected because of “animal contact in a substation.”

Most of the outages are estimated to be repaired soon.

Temperatures are expected to reach 90-degrees with a heat index in the upper 90s.
