5 pm Update to Power Restorations
Presque Isle Electric & Gas Co-op currently has approximately 3,346 services still without power. Crews have restored 7,304 services since 5:30 a.m., with approximately 10,650 outages predicted today. Crews will continue repairs throughout the night. All of PIE&G’s service territory has been affected.
Winter weather conditions are expected overnight, and winds and blowing snow may contribute to additional outages and longer repair times to replace broken poles and remove trees from lines. Wolverine Power crews are assisting PIE&G crews with restoration efforts.
With the large numbers of downed trees and outages, PIE&G anticipates that repairs will continue through tomorrow. Members who are currently without power should make preparations to be without power overnight. Current conditions should be available on our outage map at pieg.com.
Members should contact PIE&G at 1 (800) 423-6634 to report all power outages or any downed power lines. Residents are cautioned to stay at least 25 feet away from any downed wires and to report them immediately to PIE&G or local law enforcement agency (911).
