DAFTER, Mich.— Cloverland Electric Cooperative has approximately 875 outages remaining in its service territory.
As of 8:00 p.m., these storm-related outages were spread among Mackinac, Schoolcraft, Luce and Chippewa counties, with the greatest concentration in Portage, Clark and Whitefish townships.
Crews will work until 10 p.m. tonight when they will be required to go on mandatory safety rest. Challenging road conditions will continue to slow travel for crews and extend outages for some members.
This afternoon and evening, Cloverland crews were assisted by three mutual aid crews from Marquette Board of Light & Power, the City of Escanaba and Traverse City Light and Power.
Members whose power is not restored tonight should plan to make alternate arrangements for the evening. Members who depend on electricity for medical equipment should activate an emergency back-up plan for alternate sources of power or alternate lodging.
Cloverland Electric Cooperative reminds the public to stay safe and stay clear of downed power lines or tree limbs on power lines. Members should report any safety hazards to Cloverland at 1-800-562-4953 or contact their local law enforcement agency.
