With high winds, it’s no surprise that numerous power outages are occurring.
Consumers Energy is reporting about two thousand customers are without service in the Rogers City area where school was canceled.
Major outages are reported in and around the City of Oscoda, the southwest side of Hubbard Lake, Curran, Mio, Fairview, Barton City and west of Tawas.
Presque Isle Electric and Gas reports heavy outages throughout its nine county coverage area, nearly 7,000 overall, the largest amount being in Cheboygan, Montmorency, Alpena and Presque Isle counties.
They say that with the large numbers of downed trees and outages, repairs will likely continue into Wednesday. Members who are currently without power should make preparations now to be without power overnight.
