Outage Recap - Week of June 13, 2022

Published on Tuesday, June 21, 2022 in Electric

Last week’s outages were historic to say the least.

With restorations wrapping up June 17, we wanted to look back at everything that happened and thank our customers.

Damage was extensive after June 13's storms, with fallen trees, downed lines, and broken poles from Cass to Adrian and everywhere in between.
