YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - More than 10,000 people across the Valley are dealing with the cold temperatures and no electricity.

Over 5,200 people are without power in Mahoning County Monday night.

Youngstown and Austintown are the hardest hit.

St. Elizabeth Hospital has been running on generators.

In Trumbull County, that number is more than 5,700, including the entire village of McDonald, and parts of Weathersfield and Girard.

Ohio Edison says the outages are due to the cold weather, equipment overload and downed lines.

Ohio Edison will not give us an estimated restoration time as crews work on the system.

In Mercer County, the number of outages has gone down to nearly 200, from a downed wire. 

Power is expected to be restored, possibly by 11:30 p.m. there
