With high winds striking southwest Michigan, Consumers Energy is warning residents of power outages. If you happen to become one of the unlucky folks, hunkering down in the dark, you may want to have the Consumers Energy Outage Map bookmarked on your mobile device.

By going to https://www.consumersenergy.com/outagemap# you can find the current outages in the state of Michigan, how many customers affected, cause of outage and estimated time of restoration. As I write this article, a power outage has just appeared in Springfield, striking the residents in the area of Meachem Avenue. By clicking on the affected area, a pop-up window will appear with all of the details.

Another great feature is that you can also report an outage.
