Great Lakes Energy and contract line crews worked into the evening, through high winds, to return power to approximately 10,000 GLE members last night. Roughly 3,000 members are still without power this morning.
Crawford and Otsego counties currently account for the greatest concentration of remaining outages within the Great Lakes Energy service area. The majority of the outages are attributed to downed trees on powerlines. All available GLE and contracted line crews are dispatched to restore power as quickly and safely possible for remaining members. Crews hope to restore service to all remaining members by the end of the day, as long as weather permits.
Great Lakes Energy members are reminded to stay away from downed power lines and to 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.
