Most of the outages are not expected to be restored until late Wednesday evening although some customers may not expect restoration until sometime Thursday or Friday. Residents are urged not to call 911 for status updates as the lines must remain open for genuine emergency situations.
The Red Cross has opened a shelter at Memorial Presbyterian Church, 1310 Ashman Street, for Midland County residents who need shelter assistance. The shelter will provide snacks, refreshments, cots and blankets for those who need shelter during the power outage.
Midland County authorities say downed power lines are still being identified in the area. Parents are urged to keep children inside and hunters should take extra precautions to investigate their surroundings.
