Extreme heat leads to power concerns

The heat is causing concerns when it comes to power.

In Sturgis, the city is asking people to reduce unnecessary electricity usage in order to prevent a blackout in the area. They asked residents to do so by 12:30 p.m. Wednesday.

I&M Power, meantime, says the continued high demand may force them to cut power to parts of southern Michigan but customers that would be affected are being notified of the possibility.
