LANSING, MI (WTVB) - Consumers Energy believes that the majority of its customers affected by last Saturday's ice storm, one of the biggest in its 126-year history, should have power restored by later tonight. As of 9:15 Friday night, approximately 25,000 Consumers customers were still without power. Overall, the utility says a total of 399,000 outages were caused by last week's storm, affecting 22% of its customer base of 1.8 million. Over the past week, more than 3,000 office and field workers from Consumers, 13 different states, and the District of Columbia have worked on the restoration effort.
