The northwest portion of the service territory was most heavily impacted, affecting members in Paw Paw, Bloomingdale, Gobles, Covert, Hartford, Bangor and Coloma.

Updated information about outages by zip code can be seen on the cooperative’s Outage Central site. The next update will be sent by 4:15 p.m.
