Storm stays north of Allegan County
Between 100 and 400 Consumers Energy customers in Allegan County had power restored Monday morning (April 14) following weekend thunderstorms that mostly swept north of the county.
The company's online outage map showed two spots—one just west of Wayland, one northwest of the City of Allegan along M-40/M-89—were without power early Monday; both were restored by 10 a.m. The company did not release specific numbers of outages in the county. The online map is at www.consumersenergy.com/outagemap.
More than 110,000 of the company's customers were affected statewide since the beginning of the storm Saturday evening. As of 4 a.m. Monday, the company reported about 38,000 customers were still without service.
"Most should be restored by late tonight," spokesmen said Monday, "although some in the Grand Rapids and Muskegon areas—which were hit most heavily by Saturday’s thunderstorms and 60 mph winds—will wait until Tuesday."
Great Lakes Energy, which serves some parts of the county, reported Sunday afternoon it had restored power to an estimated 7,715 members. Monday morning, its online outage map, at www.gtlakes.com/storm-central/, showed 541 still without power. None were reported in Allegan County.
