A utility company reports there are more than 1,500 power outages remaining in northeastern Ohio from last week's storm.

FirstEnergy said Monday morning that crews were still working to restore electricity to a little more than 900 homes and businesses still affected.

As of 3:25 p.m. Monday, more than 1,600 Cuyahoga County FirstEnergy customers did not have electricity. Most of those are in South Euclid.

Around 250,000 Ohio electricity customers were left in the dark after high winds from superstorm Sandy's outer bands uprooted trees and brought down power lines early last Tuesday.

Cleveland officials have warned residents to watch for downed wires that could be a safety risk. A 12-year-old girl was hospitalized in critical condition last week after touching a power line brought down by the storm.
