The Lansing Board of Water and Light and Consumers Energy report that thousands of residents are without power Sunday Evening in Ingham, Eaton, and Clinton Counties. Just after 7:00PM, BWL Spokesman Steve Serkaian reported nearly 38,000 in the dark in the board's entire service area, including approximately 21,000 in Lansing
. Consumers Energy reports nearly 41,000 of its customers are without electricity. BWL has no timetable set for restoration, but says crews are working 24/7 to clean up more than 200 downed power lines. That will take place before restoration begins. BWL officials say they expect that process to begin Monday Afternoon, but make no promises. The City of Lansing has established a shelter at Trinity Church, 3355 Dunckel Rd. Lansing, MI.
Downed power lines, not outages, can be reported to BWL at 517-702-6006.
