East of the city, 119 customers were reported without electricity in Grand Rapids Township between Crahen Avenue and the Grand River. Another 86 customers lost power in Cascade Township.

North of Walker, about 281 customers lost power, along with another 56 Consumers Energy customers in Talmadge Township southwest of Marne.
