Ohio Edison is reporting that Trumbull County currently has 4,554 customers without power following Friday night’s high winds and rain.

The company is reporting that 1,448 customers are without power in Mahoning County.

In Trumbull County, that represents 5.6% of Ohio Edison’s Trumbull County customers. In Mahoning County’s case, that is 1.28% of the company’s customers.

The only county in the region with more customers without power is Geauga with 14%.

In Ashtabula, 4.89% customers are without power. Over in Portage County, 1.36% customers have lost power, and less than 1% in Columbiana County, or 143 customers, are experiencing an outage.

The areas shown on an Ohio Edison map with the most outages are the Howland Corners area and Youngstown area, but the outages appear to be pretty evenly spread out.

The outages come after a storm system brought high winds and rain to the Mahoning Valley.

According to the National Weather Service in Cleveland, today will be breezy with west winds of 18 to 20 mph, with occasional gusts exceeding 30 mph. It will gradually become sunny with a high near 55. Winds should decrease this evening, however, breezy conditions are expected to return Sunday with southwest winds around 20 mph, with gusts around 30 mph. Showers and thunderstorms are expected later in the day, with a high near 73.
