Damaging winds from storms overnight caused widespread power line damage to approximately 15,000 Great Lakes Energy members. Currently 5,419 members in 14 counties are still without power.
Most of the damage to power lines due to the storm is in parts Allegan, Barry, Lake, and Osceola counties.
All available crews are working to restore power to the remaining estimated 5,419 members. Restoration progress will depend on the more storms that are expected to move through the area later this afternoon.
Great Lakes Energy members are reminded to stay away from downed power lines and also stay clear of trees and limbs hanging on the lines. Current outage information by counties and zip codes is updated on the Great Lakes Energy website, www.gtlakes.com, by visiting Storm Central.
