Thousands Gain Power in Cleveland Heights, More Than 1,300 Left to Go
More than 7,000 FirstEnergy customers who lost power now have it back in Cleveland Heights, but there are still more than 1,300 left in the dark.
Mayor Ed Kelley, Police Chief Jeffrey Robertson and other city officials checked in with FirstEnergy many times during the past few days asking for updates and sharing information about where wires are down and where there is need.
The company estimates that all Cleveland Heights customers will have power by Monday, Nov. 4.
