Lansing public utility says it has restored power to entire service area, with a few exceptions

Jan 1, 2014

Lansing’s public utility says it has restored power to its entire service area. But on the utility’s facebook and twitter feeds, there are more than a dozen people claiming they still don’t have power.

A week and a half after a massive ice storm wiped out power to almost half Lansing’s customers, the public utility claims it has finally restored power to all but some single customers and possibly pockets of streets.

Michigan Radio’s requests for an estimate of how many people remain without power have gone unanswered. Lansing Board of Water and Light says it has 40 crews working on those areas. But it’s not clear how long that’ll take either.

The public utility says the New Years’ update will be its last update on the outage.
