Helpful Information as Extreme Weather Begins to Impact Michigan

Posted on December 22, 2022 by John LaMacchia

Extreme weather has already been affecting parts of the nation and is quickly moving into Michigan.

Rain, heavy snowfall, bitter cold and high winds are in the current forecast for Michigan beginning today, Thursday, Dec. 22. This winter weather event may cause power outages throughout state.

The state’s two largest energy providers have been closely monitoring this severe weather and are ready to mobilize for customer restoration. As you’re preparing to keep your communities and residents safe, we want to share a couple of pieces of information that may be helpful should you encounter an outage in your community.

Below, please find contact information that corresponds to your community for Regional Managers with DTE and Area Managers with Consumers Energy.

Consider:

  • Providing a 24/7 contact to the appropriate area or regional manager in the event they need to contact you.
  • Providing contact information to the appropriate area or reginal manager for your Department of Public Works contact and/or Road Agency primary contact for the holiday weekend in the event there are situations where roads need clearing to restore power.

As you work through what may be a challenging few days over the holiday weekend, please stay safe as you manage the impacts of this winter storm.
