Severe storm causes headaches in NE Ohio

CLEVELAND (AP) — Authorities say storms that moved through northeast Ohio knocked out power to thousands of customers and caused some flash flooding that could slow the morning commute.

Some roads, including a section of Interstate 90, were blocked by flash floods after the storm rolled through Sunday night. Flooding also was reported on I-271 near U.S. 422.

Flash flood watches are in effect until 4 p.m. Monday for Ashtabula, Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH'-guh), Geauga (jee-'AW-guh), Lake and Trumbull counties.

The Northeast Ohio Media Group (http://bit.ly/1tS533f ) reports that RTA commuter trains were delayed after a retaining wall collapsed near the East 93rd Street bridge, sending debris onto the tracks.

Hundreds of northeast Ohio customers were still without power before dawn Monday.
