LANSING (WILX)-- As of 12 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 25, there are approximately 7,000 customers without power in the Lansing Board of Water & Light service territory.

Line crews are working to restore power along circuits in areas reflected by the following street intersections:

Haslett / Hagadorn

MLK / Holmes

Michigan / Waverly

I-496 / MLK

Pleasant Grove / Mt Hope

Cedar / E. Miller

Haslett / E. Saginaw

Willow / Waverly

Holmes / Waverly

Hundreds of downed power lines remain to be repaired. Residents are urged to stay 25 feet away from downed wires. Downed power lines are being prioritized for repair based on public health and safety facilities and circuits with the highest number of customers without power. BWL and other municipal utility crews will continue to work around the clock until all customer power has been restored.

The BWL continues to anticipate that a substantial portion of remaining customers without power will be restored by the end of today, Christmas Day, Wednesday, Dec. 25. However, we must advise caution on this projection because ice-covered tree limbs and high winds and snow forecasted for Wednesday could hamper and/or reverse power restoration efforts.

The Board of Water & Light is aware of its outage areas. Residents can report a down power line by sending an email to custservice@lbwl.com, or by calling (517) 702-6006 or toll free at 877-295-5001. Residents may also post a downed line message on the BWL’s Facebook page or on SeeClickFlix. Please note that due to high call volumes, you may experience a busy signal and/or long wait times.
