Residents in Gaines and Swartz Creek remain in the dark on Tuesday after a storm wreaked havoc across mid-Michigan on Monday afternoon.
Consumers Energy currently anticipates power to be restored by Tuesday at 1pm. Across the state, 3,626 customers are without power on Tuesday morning, Consumers says. More than 2,500 of those are in Saginaw.
The Monday storm brought down trees and power lines from Owosso to Swartz Creek. Heat and humidity will present the possiblity for more storms on Tuesday and throughout the week as a heat wave presses down on Michigan, with weekend heat indices expected to top the 100 degree mark.
