BANGOR, Mich. — Clean up is underway in Bangor after the Aug. 20 storm. Hundreds are without power due to the downed power lines and collapsed trees.

The Bangor Police Department tells FOX 17 the west side of town is mainly without power and its expected to be back on by Monday or Tuesday.

The Bangor Police Station was also damaged in the storm, with a portion of the roof torn off and drywall collapsed inside.

At this time Mayor Nick Householder has requested a State of Emergency in hopes to get support from FEMA, state and federal aid.

Householder tells FOX 17 the Michigan State Police will be in Bangor Sunday to review and assess the damage to help make the decision what aid will be needed.

Tree companies have been volunteering to help with the clean up.
