LANSING, Mich. (AP) Angry residents have jammed a Lansing City Council meeting to slam the municipal power company's handling of widespread outages from an ice storm nine days earlier.
The Lansing Board of Water & Light says 800 homes and businesses remained offline Monday in the aftermath of the Dec. 21 storm.
The utility says 40,000 of its customers lost power at one point or another, 40 percent of its system.
Twenty-eight-year-old Kyle Shumaker told council members Monday night that the people should hold utility officials "accountable for their incompetence."
The state's largest utilities say they've restored power to their affected by the storm. In all, 666,000 Michigan homes and businesses were blacked out and at least five people died in the storm.
