UNDATED (WHTC) -- As utility workers put in overtime to restore electricity for customers across Michigan, Consumers Energy is reporting that the cavalry is on the way. More than one-thousand workers are coming from as far away as Kansas to help make repairs after Michigan’s worst ice storm in more than ten years. They are expected to be in place and on the job by Christmas Day, just in time for windier conditions and more possible outages. As of 4:30 this afternoon, more than 38-hundred customers in Allegan County and almost 12-thousand Kent County residents are still waiting for their power to be restored. Consumer Energy is projecting that most of those customers will have power by Christmas.
