Consumers Energy says work continued through the night to try and restore electrical service to thousands of customers affected by strong thunderstorms that swept across eastern Michigan on Monday afternoon and evening.

Statewide, more than 27,600 Consumers Energy electric customers are without power primarily in the Flint, Saginaw and Midland areas. The bulk of customers without power is in Genesee County with just over 24,000.

Garrick Rochow, the utility’s vice president of energy delivery, says their employees have made progress throughout the night in terms of assessing damage, making areas safe and restoring power. Rochow adds “there is still more work to do” and “throughout today we are sending additional company and contract crews to the hardest hit areas to assist is safely restoring power.”

A majority of the customers who have been without electric service since late Monday should have their power restored by 11 p.m. tonight. Updated outage information is available at www.ConsumersEnergy.com/outagemap.
