5 days later, some in Michigan still lack power

A new storm teeming with freezing rain and strong winds socked Michigan on Monday, presenting a fresh challenge for crews that have been trying to restore electricity to thousands of customers who have been in the dark since ice snapped lines days ago. The state’s largest utilities, Consumers Energy and DTE Energy, together said more than 130,000 customers lacked power by evening. “There is another storm moving through mid/northern Michigan counties with ice, freezing rain and strong wind gusts,” Consumers spokesperson Josh Paciorek said by email.
