Ohio (WKBN) – Thousands of power outages were spreading through the Valley Sunday morning.

In Trumbull county, there are still just under 975 outages. Those outages are expected to be fixed by 4 p.m.

According to First Energy Representative Lauren Suburkis, the outages were due to an equipment issue at a substation. First Energy was able to transfer customers to backup power lines, so most were not without power for more than 30 minutes.
