A mix of rain, sleet and snow that blew across northern Ohio and glazed roads and power lines with ice has left thousands of people in the dark.

First Energy spokesman Mark Durbin says more than 80,000 customers were without power Monday morning. About half of those are in the Toledo area, and the other half are in the Cleveland area.

Durbin says crews are working to fix power lines but it's likely some customers won't have their power restored until Tuesday.

The Plain Dealer in Cleveland says a dozen or more minor crashes and spin-outs were reported as the morning rush hour got under way Monday.
