HIGH WINDS CAUSE POWER OUTAGES
Weekend Wind Keeping Consumers Crews Busy
Corunna Now photo
Wind-related power outages have been peppered across the state over the past 36 hours, keeping Consumers crews busy. High winds kept low-profile vehicles off the Mackinac Bridge for many hours on Sunday as well. For a period of time the bridge was closed to all traffic due to falling ice. The bridge has since reopened to all traffic and an earlier Wind Advisory for Shiawassee County has expired, but gusts are still wreaking havoc across the state.
Consumers' outage map shows that all residents in Shiawassee County have power as of 6pm, however, residents in Clinton County's St. Johns lost power Sunday afternoon. Consumers says 2,500 customers there are affected. Just further west, in Ionia County, an outage impacts just under 200 customers in the Muir area.
A message on the Consumers Energy website reads: We have boots on the ground, fighting back against Michigan’s worst. We’ve weathered these storms before and our crews are fully prepared to restore power as quickly as possible. Visit the Outage Center to report an outage, receive estimated restoration times and safety tips.

BRACING FOR ANOTHER WINTER BLAST
Winter Storm Watch Issued; Many Forecast Models Project 5+ Inches
Renee Wheeler Smith
Most forecast models agree: we're in for a significant snowstorm. A WINTER STORM WATCH has been issued and the National Weather Service is now projecting 4 to 8 inches of snow for Shiawassee County beginning early in the overnight hours of Friday and continuing to fall throughout the day Friday until around midnight Saturday.
Forecast models that we've looked at today have ranged in storm totals from 4.7 inches on the low end to 6.9 inches -- possibly more -- in Shiawassee County. Points south of here, say, Detroit, should brace for as much as a foot of snow.
