FLINT (WJRT) - (01/11/20) - A winter storm imposing its will on Mid-Michigan began to knock out power for DTE and Consumers Energy customers Saturday.
The first outages in the area started to pop up in the Almont area in Lapeer County as well as Lapeer Township. A few hundred DTE customers were without power.
In Shiawassee County in the Corunna and Owosso areas, nearly 8,000 Consumers Energy customers were without power. All of those had been restored by 11 a.m., leaving only a small area of Flint out of power.
