Widespread power outages are affecting downtown Cleveland Wednesday morning, as building, streetlights and homes are all without power.

Reports of the outages stretch as far west as Franklin and West 65th, and as far east as Carnegie and East 70th. The outages have left streets completely dark, creating a traffic hazard for the morning commute.

Cleveland Public Power has not responded to phone calls and messages seeking more information, so the full extent of the outages is unknown.

A Cleveland fire station on Superior Avenue has no power and no generator, and firefighters had to park the truck outside, and prop open the garage door in case of a call.

There is no word on when power will likely be restored.
