12.14.15 @ 3:45pm: We just received several calls from residents at ten different properties on the East Side between North Ave. & Belleview Pl. and Oakland Ave. & Summit Ave. stating that the power in their buildings is OUT.
We have reached out to WE Energies and they have said there are over 3500 people without power. They do not know what happened or why, but they already have several emergency teams trying to identify & resolve the issue. They said that they hope and expect to have the problem identified & resolved by 5:30pm this evening; if it is not, please call WE Energies directly for updates.
UPDATE: 12.14.15 @ 4:55pm: We have received word that at least one building has had power restored; we are hopeful the rest will be shortly.
