FirstEnergy crews are restoring power to those hit hard by the early October snowfall.

The company’s website says around 18, 621 are without power as of midnight Thursday.

The majority of outages are in Cuyahoga and Geauga counties.

An additional 150 crews from FirstEnergy Corp utilities Ohio Edison, Toledo Edison, Penelec and West Penn Power are expected to arrive in the hardest hit areas throughout the day to assist with the restoration process.

The weight of the “lake effect” snow – combined with leaves still being on the trees – has resulted in numerous tree limbs and branches falling into CEI equipment and wires, causing service interruptions.

The majority of customers currently without power are expected to be restored by Friday, if not sooner, based on current weather conditions.
