SOUTH BEND (WKZO) -- Indiana and Michigan has finally completed repairs on their system after last Tuesday morning’s stormy weather.

At the peak their system had over 74-thousand without power.

For some unfortunate few, it was the second major holiday they have spent without power in the last year, after last December’s Christmas Ice Storm.

If you live in the City of Battle Creek, they are offering a special limb and brush pick-up but they want the material on the curb by 6 a.m. Monday morning.

It should either be packed into biodegradable bags or chopped into 4 foot lengths and tied into bundles that weigh less than 50-pounds.
