Power restoration continues for some after severe storms

Posted: Updated:

About 13,000 of more than 183,000 Consumers Energy residential and business customers who lost electricity during severe storms remain without power.

The utility says it expects to have service restored to most by Sunday night.

Power restoration will continue into Monday for portions of Alcona, Iosco, Gladwin, Ogemaw, Oscoda and Roscommon counties.

Thunderstorms followed by winds with gusts topping 60 mph toppled trees, utility poles and power lines across western and northern Michigan Wednesday and Thursday leaving many homes in the dark over Christmas.

Consumers Energy says its crews are being assisted by utility workers from five other states.

The Mining Journal of Marquette reports Sunday that about 1,400 Cloverland Electric Cooperative members in the eastern Upper Peninsula still were without power due to high winds.
