Consumers Energy: Getting Power Restored for Those Affected by Flood

Consumers Energy says it is working to restore power after historic flooding in mid-Michigan counties.

They say as waters levels drop, they might have to turn off power in some sections to keep people safe.

If your home was flooded, you will need a licensed electrical inspector to look at it before service can be restored.

If you have no natural gas, a certified HVAC technician will need to inspect your appliances and equipment before it can be reconnected.

Consumers Energy also says they are working with the United Way, the Red Cross, and others to help with cleanup and emergency relief efforts.

The Consumers Energy Foundation plans to contribute almost $90,000 in grants for further help.
