Consumers Energy warning residents of possible outages this evening


NORTHERN MICHIGAN — Consumers Energy is warning customers that severe weather tonight may lead to significant power outages across the Northern Lower Peninsula.

A Consumers Energy press release states the power company is monitoring an approaching storm front with winds that could exceed 50 miles per hour. This storm, combined with the softening of the ground due to excess precipitation the state has seen lately could lead to downed trees and power lines. The storm is expected to begin around 6 p.m. and will impact residents in communities from the northern tip of the Lower Peninsula south to Bay City.

If residents see a downed power line, Consumers asks that they remain at least 25 feet from it at all times and report it by calling 9-1-1.
