More than 500 customers are without power in Saginaw.

Most of the outage is contained to between Brockway Road and Court Street, north of M-46.

According to the Consumers Energy outage map, they estimate power won’t be restored until 9:30 p.m. But a spokesperson for Consumers Energy said that time could be changed once crews are able to assess the damage. 

"What we’re hearing we had some high winds today and trees came down," said Terry DeDoes. "We’re getting crews out there right now, so that 9:30 time could change, we’re getting folks on the scene to get repairs.”

DeDoes said he believed the original estimate of 9:30 p.m. would be moved up.
