Saturday storms cause wide-spread power outages

Following storms causing power outages Saturday, Indiana Michiana Power crews have been working to restore power to the area.

As of 9:15 a.m. Sunday, approximately 15,000 Michigan customers remain out of power on 352 separate outages. There are currently 13,850 Berrien County outages, 200 Cass County outages and 1,000 Van Buren County outages.

Additional crews from out of state are en-route to assist. Customers will be restored gradually as crews work through each outage case, but due to the widespread damage representatives with Indiana Michigan power are advising to prepare to be without power for a few days.

Representatives will have more specific estimated restoration times available as they work through repairs.

They are also advising that residents be aware of the hazards of a wind storm of this type. Downed wires should always be considered energized and dangerous. Keep away from them and anything they could be touching. Watch for wires down that could be touching fences or hidden under tree limbs or debris. Stay away and call Indiana Michigan Power at (800) 311-4634 to report any downed wires.

Customers can also report outages and check the latest restoration information for their account via IndianaMichiganPower.com/Outages or on the new mobile app; search for Indiana Michigan Power in the App Store or Google Play to download it.

Customers can also follow Indiana Michigan Power on Facebook at Indiana Michigan Power and Twitter at @IN_MI_Power for the latest updates.
