After much of Northeast Ohio was without power throughout the afternoon on Wednesday, FirstEnergy has been able to cut into the number of customers reporting outages. The number of customers without power reached over 150,000 at about 5 p.m. on March 8.

The number of customers without power has dropped to a little over 50,000. With much of Northeast Ohio under a high wind advisory, power lines had been going down across the region on Wednesday. Customers still without power are being told they may have to wait until late Friday or early Saturday to get their power back.

Temperatures are supposed to drop as we approach the weekend, which could spell trouble for the customers that remain without power. The low on Thursday is 34 degrees, but on Friday a light snow could fall in the morning as temperatures dip into the 20s.

No area was left untouched by the outages, according to FirstEnergy's outage map. The East and West Side of Cleveland had been crushed by power outages.

The FirstEnergy Outages map says that up to 1,500 customers in Lakewood were still without power at 9:30 p.m. on Wednesday night. Another 500 customers were powerless between Cleveland Heights and Cleveland. Up to 1,500 customers near Highland Heights were also be powerless.

The National Weather Service issued the high wind warning, saying the strong gusts could reach up to 60 mph on the morning of March 8. The high wind warning expired at 7 p.m. on Wednesday Winds are only expected to hit about 35 mph on Thursday.

You can find local power outages listed on FirstEnergy's website.

Cities and police departments across the region have been responding to the winds.

Blustery day today. Be careful.
