Ohio officials say help may be available for those with uninsured losses from last week’s superstorm Sandy.

The Ohio Emergency Management Agency said those with uninsured losses from the storm should contact their local emergency management agency for resources that can help them.

FirstEnergy reported about 1,500 homes and businesses in northeastern Ohio were still without power Tuesday, a week after the storm. Most of the outages were in Cleveland and its suburbs.

Around 250,000 Ohio electricity customers were left in the dark after high winds from Sandy’s outer bands uprooted trees and brought down power lines.
