More than 150,000 energy consumers, without electricity, in Michigan have been hit hard by severe storms.
*- Energy consumer reports indicate that more than 150,000 customers are currently without power.
*- Consumers also said during a press conference on Thursday, December 16th that they hope to reach energy recovery for all by late Saturday.
*- Consumers have also released the information we will give you about the storm and their active energy recovery efforts:
— The winds, which exceeded the speed of about 60 miles per hour, caused the fall of many trees and limbs, and more than 1,700 power lines as well.
The worst affected areas also include the regions (western Michigan along the lakeshore), and (much of the northwestern as well as the northeastern regions of the state).
— Based on current damage assessments, we expect power to be restored to the majority of affected customers by the end of Saturday.
And we can only put workers in the air or in bucket trucks to do the energy recovery only when the winds are less than 35 miles per hour and that’s for safety.
