About 5,200 area FirstEnergy customers are without power, a spokesman for the company is reporting.
David Turner said the largest concentration of customers without power is in the Youngstown / Austintown area, where a combined 4,600 customers don't have electric service. Another 360 customers in the Jackson Township area of Mahoning County are without power, too, Turner said.
Turner could not say when power might be restored. The cause apparently is weather-related but has not been pinpointed, he said. Temperatures are about 10 degrees below zero.
People without power in Mahoning County can go to a warming center at the Boardman Township Administrative Building, 8299 Market St.
In Trumbull County, a dispatcher at the 911 Center reported outages in McDonald, Mineral Ridge, Liberty and Girard.
More will be posted as information becomes available.
