FirstEnergy has 650 linemen working in the area, with more than 100 focused just on restoration to Cleveland residents, the city said. More crews are headed our way from Colorado, Idaho and Montana.

FirstEnergy spokesman Mark Durbin said lineman are working as quickly as possible to get big chunks of customers back online.
"Probably, it's going to end up that those locations where we just have one or two customers out, that's going to take a while. But again, when you have potentially thousands of different locations where we have to go and made a repair, that's why it takes time to do that," Durbin said.
FirstEnergy said it has restored power to more than 820,000 of the 2.2 million customers who lost electricity in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia and Maryland during superstorm Sandy.
