Over 10,000 Great Lakes Energy customers still without power following massive Sunday storm system

blogger-image--1659203105Crews continue to restore power to more than 10,000 members

 

An estimated 10,603 Great Lakes Energy members remain without power Monday morning following a massive fall storm that hit the Midwest. Power has been restored to an estimated 20,741 GLE members so far since the storm hit Sunday afternoon.

 

All available Great Lakes Energy lineworker crews assisted by contracted lineworker and tree-trimming crews are currently working this morning to repair power line damage in 22 of the 26 counties served by Great Lakes Energy. Most of the outages are in parts of Allegan, Antrim, Barry, Charlevoix, Crawford, Emmet, Kalkaska, Kent, Lake, Newaygo, Oceana, Otsego and Ottawa counties. Falling trees and limbs due to the high winds are the primary cause of the power line damage.

 

Crews expect to get most members back on by late tonight, although predicted wind gusts up to 50 mph today could create more power line damage and outages.

 

Current outage information by counties and townships that is updated every 15 minutes can be viewed on the Great Lakes Energy website, www.gtlakes.com, by clicking on Storm Central.

 

Great Lakes Energy members are reminded to stay away from downed power lines for their safety and protection.

 

Phone lines may be busy due to the massive storm. Great Lakes Energy members who experience a busy signal when reporting their outage should continue calling the electric cooperative’s automated, toll-free outage number:  1-800-678-0411.
