BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) – Power has been restored to the approximately 2,600 customers in Boardman who were without power.
The outage on Monday morning also included Boardman High School, Stadium Elementary and Glenwood Junior High.
Boardman schools’ spokesperson Amy Radinovic said they directed students to the cafeteria until power was restored at 8:35 a.m. The power went out around 7:30 a.m.
Radinovic said the school district followed its safety plan to keep students in the cafeteria until power was restored or it became light enough to send students back to their classrooms.
A First Energy official said a wire came down at a substation in the area of Glenwood Avenue, causing the outage.
