FLINT, Mich. (WJRT) - More than 5,800 Consumers Energy customers in the Flint area are sweating out a hot afternoon with no electricity.

Consumers says two substations failed around 2:45 p.m. Homes and businesses north and west of downtown Flint lost power with temperatures in the upper 80s.

A spokeswoman for the utility was not sure when power would be restored, but the Consumers Energy website lists a possible repair time at 7 to 7:15 p.m. That time is could change, however.
