Northeast Ohio still grappling with power outages

Associated Press • Nov 1, 2012 at 1:05 PM

FirstEnergy reports that around 99,000 customers were still without electricity Thursday afternoon, with most of the outages concentrated in Cleveland and the western suburbs. The utility says it hopes to have most of it restored by the end of the weekend.

High winds spinning off superstorm Sandy swiped Ohio early Tuesday, uprooting trees, bringing down power lines and causing other havoc. Two people were killed in crashes on icy roads in northwest Ohio.

Much of the northeast is still struggling to recover from the devastating storm, which killed more than 70 people.
