"So hopefully we'll begin to gain on this," he said.
Between 70 to 100 people were expected to stay overnight at the Lakewood shelter.
"We can't cook. We don't have a phone. The toilets hardly flush. It's just bad," said Dawn Baker, who hasn't had any electricity since Monday.
Kasich passed out candy to the guests at the shelter. Earlier, he held a news briefing in Cleveland with Mayor Frank Jackson and praised the city and Cuyahoga County for its response to the storm.
"People should feel good about what's happened here, but we're not out of the woods yet," he said. "But things are looking much better."
