Small areas of power outages reported spread around West Michigan


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Small pockets of minor power outages began showing up around West Michigan at midday Sunday.

Those came after thunderstorms quickly passed through the area late Sunday morning. The storms lacked the intensity that originally had been expected.

Consumers Energy showed a half dozen areas spread throughout West Michigan experiencing power outages affecting up to 50 customers each.

There were several larger areas whose electrical service was disturbed, however. They included the following:

* Muskegon, Muskegon Township and Norton Shores, where up to 1,358 customers at one point were impacted.

* Kent City, Casnovia, Lowell and Saranac, where up to 200 customers were affected.

No causes or estimated times of restoration were reported for any of the outages. All of them quickly had crews on scene servicing them, however.

At about 1:30 p.m. Sunday the National Weather Service reported that a total of 16,470 customers were without electrical service across the state of Michigan.
