In The Region:

President Obama is canceling his trip to Akron tomorrow. His campaign says he needs to remain in D.C."to monitor the response to Hurricane Sandy and ensure that all available federal resources continue to be provided to support ongoing state and local recovery efforts."
Mr. Obama had planned a campaign rally in Akron tomorrow afternoon. He also called off plans to join former President Clinton in Youngstown yesterday.

Overall Ohio has been spared the worst of the storm that hit the East Coast, but Superstorm Sandy did cancel classes in hundreds of schools today, closed lanes on some interstates and cut power to hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses.

Many of the biggest problems in the state came in areas hugging Lake Erie. More than 200,000 people remain without power in Cuyahoga, Lake and Lorain counties.

Water flooded and access road to Cleveland Hopkins airport, which has cancelled all flights through 3 p.m., and some flights into Akron Canton from Philadelphia, New YorkCity, Florida and Denver also have been cancelled.

Cleveland fire crews responded to some 1,100 calls over the last 24 hours, mostly having to do with downed power lines, and Cleveland extended its police shifts from 10 to 14 hours.

The city says Burke Lakefront Airport sustained some damage, but it doesn’t know how much.
