The Jackson-based utility says the most affected counties are in west and mid-Michigan, including Muskegon (26,750), Kent (13,900) and Mecosta (12,930).

Other affect counties include Genesee (8,185), Gratiot (1,095), Ionia (4,820); Isabella (2,170), Missaukee (2,500); Montcalm (7,500), Oceana (2,380), Osceola (1,350) and Shiawassee (6,820).

Consumers says crews are working "around the clock" and most customers will have energy service restored by late Monday night. The company says it expects more "damaging storm activity" Sunday.
