CLEVELAND — Tens of thousands of residents across Northeast Ohio lost power Friday night when storms rolled through the area uprooting trees and bringing down wires.

Around 60,000 Cuyahoga County residents lost power. As of Saturday afternoon, more than 20,000 residents are still waiting for crews to restore power, according to FirstEnergy.

According to FirstEnergy, some residents may be without power through the weekend. The hardest hit areas are Cleveland, Cleveland Heights, Shaker Heights, Lyndhurt and Mayfield Heights.

FirstEnergy is asking residents to stay away from downed power lines and report hazards and outages by calling 1-888-LIGHTSS.

Cleveland Public Power said that a large number of outages in Cleveland have been fixed, but they are still working to resolve outages in some areas.
