The first snow of the season was seen in multiple cities and towns in Ohio, including Athens, Willoughby Hills, and Cleveland–and the severe weather knocked power out for tens of thousands of people.

Because of the power outages, Kenston Local Schools said that its schools–Kenston High School, Middle School, and Intermediate School, as well as Timmons Elementary School–are closed for the day.

In Geauga County, a tree fell of wires at Caves and Sherman Road, another tree fell into a house, and multiple fires started, the Sheriff’s Office said. 

Power has been restored for some people but there are still over 1,000 households without power, according to an online power outage map.
