Crews get the power back on

OKEMOS, Mich. (WILX) -- UPDATE: Consumers Outage map indicates that power has been restored.

The storm might be over but its effects are still lingering. Although the majority of people have power, there are still a few hundred customers in the dark.

Consumers Energy has restored power to more 140,000 customers who were out at one time over the weekend. Terry DeDoes says Mid-Michigan had the most ice-related outages. But the silver lining is that having the most outages means having the most crews from around the state are working to restore power.

"They've moved down here and are working on this area almost exclusively, working to bring the power back on to Mid-Michigan residents as safely and as quickly as possible," DeDoes says.

Brian Jones is the co-owner of Playmakers in Okemos. He closed the store yesterday but chose to open today even without power. The employees made the best out of the situation

"You know its kind of an adventure for them. We told them that they could leave their jackets on and if they need to use their phones as a flashlight to find things in back, then that's all fair game," Jones said.

The store had enough electricity from generators to keep the registers running. Jones is thankful they store gets enough natural light to allow them to stay open.

"You know I guess it's just a curve-ball, life is always throwing us things that are out of our control, and the important thing is that we can control what we can control," Jones said.

Consumers Energy says that all of its customers should have power back by 11:00 tonight.
