UPDATE: Power Outages, Bangor and South Haven hardest hit


KALAMAZOO (WKZO) – Tuesday’s rainstorms caused some temporary street flooding in Kalamazoo as winds of up to 60-MPH knocked down trees near the lakeshore in Allegan and Van Buren Counties.

It gave the area a much needed drenching after a dry spell that had lasted a couple of weeks.

It did leave some parts of South West Michigan without power. A couple thousand were affected in Van Buren County which was hardest hit. 

Most have had their power restores in Western Van Buren County, but a few may have to wait until midday to get the lights back on. 

Kalamazoo, Calhoun and Jackson Counties also experienced scattered outages, with about a thousand customers in Calhoun County impacted, and only a few hundred in the other areas.

I & M Electric reported about two-thousand customers without power at the peak. They say some in St. Joseph and Berrien Counties won’t have power restored until later Wednesday afternoon.

Some in Indiana could be in the dark all day Thursday as well.
