Power outages, trees down after strong winds blow through mid-Michigan

Posted: Updated:
SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

Thousands of Saginaw residents left in the dark for a couple hours Sunday as strong gusty winds blew through the area.

David Oppermann was just one of the many who saw their dreary Sunday morning come to a halt.

"The lights all went off," said Oppermann. "And of course I wanted to rush to my television set to watch channel 5 but that didn't work either!"

Consumers Energy confirmed a pole was damaged, resulting in those outages.

Just blocks from the outage at Bates and Williams Streets, a large tree came crashing down, coming inches from hitting a house and leaving a big mess behind.
