Kosciusko REMC is also reporting power outages across the county.

Due to the heavy snow and extremely high winds roughly 1,700 Kosciusko REMC members are without power.

Those impacted include those served by the Maple Leaf substation in the northern part of the county.

Crews are currently working to restore the substation and are also responding to two broken poles on north State Road 19. A majority of the county is experiencing power blinks due to tree limbs coming in contact with lines.

To report an outage or downed power lines call 574-267-6331 or 1-800-790-7362.

Finally, after almost three hours, Midwest Energy Cooperative’s Mason Substation has restored power to 1200 members in Edwardsburg, Cassopolis and Union served off the Mason Substation.

300 members remain without power as of 11:30 a.m. Wednesday.

A crew is onsite now to change out a broken insulator. Officials say these outages could last several hours.

There are numerous other individual and line outages scattered across the southwest Michigan service territory related to heavy snow on trees and power lines. Crews are in the field and working on restoration efforts.
