Sunday morning power outage likely caused by heavy rain
Some Consumers Energy customers in the Hastings area woke up Sunday morning to find they were without power.
An outage was reported shortly before 5 a.m. south of the city when a circuit went down in the area of Tanner Lake and Cook roads, Consumers spokesman Roger Morgenstern said.
The outage is believed to have been weather-related.
“Sometimes if we get a heavy rain, it affects the equipment,” Morgenstern said.
A total of 831 Consumers customers in the city of Hastings, along with Rutland and Hastings charter townships, were affected.
Service was restored at 7:38 a.m., Morgenstern said.
