Numerous power outages Tuesday morning left more than 10,000 FirstEnergy customers in the dark.  Most of those affected had their power back on within an hour or two.  And at this hour, all but a handful of customers have their power back.

FirstEnergy area manager Dan DeVille said the first power outage occurred Tuesday at 6:11 a.m.

"A line that failed came down in the area Ohio 545 and Crall Road. As a result of that it caused a power outage for 1,841 people," DeVille said. "A crew was able to isolate the problem and power should be restored to all customers by 9:30 a.m." DeVille said.

DeVille said the second power outage occurred at 8:07 a.m. in the southeast section of Richland County and south section of Mansfield.  DeVille says nearly 10,000 customers were affected by that problem.

FirstEnergy's interactive outage map still shows just a few isolated outages in our area.  And most of those customers should have their power back shortly.
