Consumer’s Energy Power Outages at 2:10 am Wed. August 11, 2021

The above map shows power outages as of 2:10 am Wed. As I type this Consumers Energy reports 197,600 customers without power from 2,228 separate outages. Obviously, it’ll take awhile to get to everyone. There are currently (pun not really intended) 262,987 customers without power in Michigan, the most of any state. Wisconsin is second in power outages with 164,630 and Illinois is third with 143,717 without power.


Here’s radar – much of the day today will be dry – but there is a chance of an isolated shower or storm. The better chance of storms will again be towards evening.
