Severe weather causes downed trees, power outages throughout Northeast Ohio

FirstEnergy reports more than 11,000 customers in Northeast Ohio are currently without power.

CLEVELAND — The good news is, the severe weather seems to be clearing out in Northeast Ohio after a second round of storms hit our area on Monday afternoon. 

The bad news is that we have some cleaning up to do. 

The severe thunderstorms that made their way through several area counties brought with it high winds and plenty of hail that caused both power outages as well as damage.

There is a Severe Thunderstorm Watch until 8:00 p.m. on Monday evening for the following counties: Ashtabula, Carroll, Columbiana, Coshocton, Geauga, Holmes, Lake, Mahoning, Portage, Stark, Summit, Trumbull, Tuscarawas and Wayne.
