FirstEnergy gave the following statement Saturday night:

Crews have been working through the storm all day, even as winds continued to do damage. Windstorms create a lot of small damage across a wide area, so we still have damaged areas to visit. I believe as of 9:30, we have fewer than 5,000 customers still without service in Northeast Ohio, with 1300 of them in Cuyahoga County. The nature of the damage makes it difficult to predict accurately when work might be finished, but we will have outages from these windstorms that last into tomorrow.
