FirstEnergy is working to restore power to people within the Mahoning Valley.

Lauren Siburkis, Senior Communications Representative for FirstEnergy, said the customers in hard hit areas may not have their power restored for a couple of days.

The company works to restore areas with the highest number of affected people first. Then, it moves to areas with a fewer number of affected people.

Siburkis said 40 to 50 thousand people saw their power restored last night as a result of equipment installed which makes it easier for the company to complete restorations. Crews are able to restore the electric remotely using the equipment.

Due to the strong wind, no bucket trucks were able to be used last night during the storm.

Outages in the area can be found on FirstEnergy's website as well as
