HASLETT - Power has been restored to customers in the East Lansing and Haslett area. Over 7,000 Consumer Energy customers lost power in the early morning hours. High wind knocked a ground wire into an energized wire near the intersection of Saginaw Street and Abbot Road in East Lansing. That caused the power loss at the Lake Lansing, Red Cedar and Meridian substations. Power was lost from approximately 4:10am until 6:35am. Murphy Elementary School in Haslett closed for the day as a result of the power outage.

High winds caused power outages around mid-Michigan. 1,200 customers lost power in Clinton County. 780 customers lost power in Jackson County. Power has since been restored to most customers.
