Thousands Without Power in Roscommon, Crawford Counties

Thousands of people are dealing with a power outage today in Roscommon and Crawford Counties.

Consumers Energy crews have been working since early this afternoon to restore power to roughly 3,500 people in northern Roscommon County and southern Crawford County.

Consumers Energy says high winds knocked down power lines in the area, causing the mass outage.

They’re estimating all customers will have power back by midnight tonight.
