First Energy crews work to restore power

CLEVELAND -- The brutal temperatures left 15,000 FirstEnergy customers out in the cold early Tuesday morning.

FirstEnergy crews worked around the clock to restore the lost power.

By noon, most all the outages had been fixed, but the bitterly cold air is causing more to pop up around town.

Crews have been braving the cold and winds.

The Grandview Pointe Apartments in Euclid lost power around 1 a.m on Tuesday.

Tenants say all they could do is cuddle up to keep warm.

"You can really feel the difference instantly. It was warm in there at first, then all of a sudden we had to snuggle to stay warm," said Robert Clay.

"It was that temperature that you can't distinguish what temp it is because it's just that cold," said Carolin Clay.

Power was restored at 8 a.m.
