(WKBN) — Friday night and Saturday morning’s high winds and storm damage knocked down trees and wires across the Valley.
Saturday night, FirstEnergy reported thousands of outages across Mahoning, Trumbull and Columbiana counties. Most did not have estimated restoration times.
About 2,000 outages were reported in Mahoning and Trumbull counties each, while Columbiana County had just under 1,000 as of 5:30 p.m. Saturday. As of 9 p.m. Saturday, those outages were down to 800 in Columbiana, 284 in Mahoning and 925 in Trumbull.
Winds brought down a tree on Jeanette Drive in Boardman that was about four feet in diameter and about 30-40 feet tall. It missed crushing any cars but did trap an SUV.
The weather also took out part of a sign near the entrance to the shops along 224 in Boardman.
A tree also fell in a WKBN employee’s yard in Poland.
