More than 5,500 Great Lakes Energy (GLE) members were without power following a wave of heavy, wet snow that began yesterday. GLE line crews have been dispatched and are working to restore service to the remaining 3,000 members still affected.
Outages are reported across eleven counties throughout the Great Lakes Energy service territory. Areas most impacted by outages are Kent and Newaygo counties.
