(Lake County) -  

First Energy now reports 3000 customers in Lake County are without electricity, and they're projecting that the power will be back on around 6:00PM Saturday. 50,000 customers in Lake County to Asthabula County lost electricity early Saturday morning, according to FirstEnergy spokeswoman Mia Moore.

Problems with an insulator in two locations along a transmission line in Lake County have caused the outage.  

It's the second weekend in a row that Lake and Ashtabula Counties have lost power because of the transmission line trouble.

Some residents have reportedly been throwing out perishable foods because they've been so long without electricity.
