HIGH WINDS CAUSE POWER OUTAGES
Weekend Wind Keeping Consumers Crews Busy

Wind-related power outages have been peppered across the state over the past 36 hours, keeping Consumers and BWL crews busy. High winds kept low-profile vehicles off the Mackinac Bridge for many hours on Sunday as well. For a period of time the bridge was closed to all traffic due to falling ice. The bridge has since reopened to all traffic and an earlier Wind Advisory impacting mid-Michigan communities has expired, but gusts are still wreaking havoc across the state.
Around 2,000 residents in the Lansing area without power on Sunday morning were expected to see their lights come on by 11pm, WILX-TV reported, however, residents in Clinton County's St. Johns lost power Sunday afternoon. Consumers says 2,500 customers there are affected. Just further west, in Ionia County, an outage impacts just under 200 customers in the Muir area. A message on the Consumers Energy website reads: We have boots on the ground, fighting back against Michigan’s worst. We’ve weathered these storms before and our crews are fully prepared to restore power as quickly as possible. Visit the Outage Center to report an outage, receive estimated restoration times and safety tips.

Following his departure from Lansing's 97.5 NOW FM (WJIM-FM) earlier this year, where Josh Strickland hosted mornings for nearly a decade, he joined the statewide Smile FM Radio Network in a capacity that meant a bit smaller profile, but that is about to change.
Strickland is officially stepping into the morning show position at Smile FM. Lansing listeners will again be able to hear Strickland's show, Monday through Friday from 5am to 10am, on 88.1. The network has frequencies all across the state -- more than twenty five stations from Detroit to Marquette in the western Upper Peninsula.
