Great Lakes Energy continues restoration efforts after multiple rounds of damaging wind and rain storms hit the cooperative’s service area on Saturday. Currently, over 6,000 members in 15 counties are still without power.
Most of the damage caused by the storm is in parts Allegan, Barry, Lake, Oceana, and Osceola counties.
All available Great Lakes Energy crews assisted by contract crews are working to restore power. It is anticipated that restoration efforts for some areas will continue into Sunday. Members who are still without power at midnight tonight could be without power overnight and may want to make alternate arrangements if they require power.
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.
Great Lakes Energy members can report their power outage online, on the Great Lakes Energy app or by calling 888-485-2537.
