Wed., 3:54 pm: Weather knocks out power to thousands in Trumbull

Ohio Edison is reporting that at least 3,000 customers in the Trumbull County area are without power because of downed wires.

Spokesman Mark Durbin said the goal is to get power lines back up and power restored “as quickly as possible.”

Downed wires were reported in Warren at Elm Road and Vine Avenue. It is not clear whether that situation has caused any outages.

Durbin said weather that has hit the area this afternoon is responsible for the power outages and is also making it more difficult for work crews to respond to the problems.
