LAKE COUNTY, OH (WOIO) -

FirstEnergy just called 19 Action News to report power has been restored to everyone affected in Lake County. 

"Customers are back on," confirmed spokesman Mark Durbin. 

Just in time. 

Our Blake Chenault called from the Fairport Harbor area, where 500 - 1,500 customers were affected. 
 
He said residents there told him they spent the day cold and miserable.

"Again, this was complicated by the weather," Durbin reported. "We appreciate everyone's patience because they're the ones who had a rough day."

A high voltage transmission line crashed to the ground just before midnight Saturday, leaving more than 40,000 customers in Lake County without power.

Dozens of specialists from First Energy's division of Ohio Edison had to be called in.

Contact FirstEnergy at 1-888-LIGHTSS (1-888-544-4877) to report a power outage in your neighborhood.
