NEW UPDATE: Power Back On at Cleveland Clinic Mercy

CANTON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – At last check, Cleveland Clinic Mercy Hospital was still going through internal power restoration measures, so emergency patients were still being diverted to other hospitals.

This as the Canton hospital continues working through a devastating fire Tuesday that took out two transformers that served the hospital.

AEP Ohio worked all night long to install a mobile transformer.

No cause for that fire Tuesday morning, but Canton firefighters had to wait to douse the flames until the transformers were de-energized.

The hospital operated on a backup generator, though scheduled surgeries were canceled.
