Power Outages Affect Thousands in Northern Michigan

Weather conditions are improving Wednesday morning after Tuesday night’s storms in parts of Northern Michigan.

But high winds left thousands of electric customers in the dark.

Several counties are dealing with outages that affect more than a thousand people. Oceana, Montcalm and Newaygo are the counties seeing the most. At their highest, Oceana had about 4,500 people without power and Montcalm had around 3,200.

Power is expected to be restored in many areas by Wednesday afternoon.
