Power Restoration Going Slow
Tuesday Jul 01, 2014 6:33pm

(UNDATED) – Slowly but surely, power restoration efforts are moving forward following severe storms that moved through the area Monday night and early Tuesday morning.

Patty Nowlin, Director of Communications for Midwest Energy Cooperative, says they still have approximately 7300 customers without power as of this afternoon. The outage spans the entire southwest Michigan service territory.

Crews have been working through the night and ten additional contract and mutual aid crews from across Michigan are coming to the region to assist with clean up and restoration. However, Nowlin says due to the extensive damage and significant clean up and rebuilding required, Midwest officials believe it will be Thursday or Friday before all service is restored.

Consumer's Energy is also reporting widespread outages. In St. Joseph County, the bulk of the outages are north and west of Sturgis heading towards Centreville and stretching from east of Three Rivers through Mendon and east towards Leonidas. There are also some isolated areas without power around Klinger Lake and north of Burr Oak.

Indiana-Michigan Power officials say they have around 3200 St. Joseph County customer without power and in Cass County the number is 5895 customers without power. Down in Elkhart County, 1582 customers are still without power.
