Icy conditions have contributed to a series of power outages in several Patch areas on Monday. Particularly hard hit are Lakewood and Shaker Heights. Brecksville was unaffected.
FirstEnergy spokesperson Mark Durbin said, “We’re hopeful” to get power restored soon, but some areas may not be restored until Tuesday.
As of about 9 a.m. Monday, 4,800 Lakewood customers were without power, Durbin said, and 1,200 Shaker Heights customers were without power.
Other areas affected include Beachwood, with about 150 customers without electricity, and Solon with about 120 customers offline. Fairlawn had two customers reporting outages. Twinsburg, Stow and Cuyahoga Falls reported no outages Monday morning.
A utility pole fire caused outages in the Cleveland area Sunday night.
FirstEnergy updates its estimates of area outages on its website regularly.
