LAKE COUNTY -- FirstEnergy crews are restoring power to those hit hard by the early October snowfall.
The company's website says approximately 267 customersare without power as of 11:40 p.m. Saturday.
The majority of outages are in Cuyahoga and Geauga counties respectively.
An additional 150 crews from FirstEnergy Corp utilities Ohio Edison, Toledo Edison, Penelec and West Penn Power have been called in to assist with the restoration process.
The weight ofThursday's 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.
FirstEnergy says you can report an outage through an app available for Apple iPhones and Android phones, using the search term "FirstEnergy."
The priority for restoration starts with emergency services, including hospitals, police, and fire.
Repairs are scheduled based on restoring the most people the fastest. In areas with severe damage, it may require repairs in multiple locations to restore power to one location.
