Last night 60 Mph wind gusts downed power lines and trees alike, leaving Consumers Energy to pick up the damages. 134,800 people were effected by dozens of downed power lines that Consumers crews are still actively working on restoring.
It is anticipated that most of the effected customers will not have their power restored until late Wednesday. As of this morning, 94,000 people are still affected by the damages.
Mason County came out relatively unscathed; LDN reported earlier in the day, wires were down in the area of Fisher Road east of Jebavy Drive, setting a tree on fire about 4:30 PM.
Great Lakes Energy is reporting just 11 people without power in Mason County. Manistee County had 760 outages reported by Consumers. If you are without power you can call Consumers at 1-800-477-5050.
