JACKSON, (WKZO) -- West Michigan is sending more help to parts of the country left crippled by Hurricane Sandy, or at least its largest Utility is sending crews east.
Now that the wind has stopped blowing here, Consumers Energy has sent some of their own line crews east to help in the reconstruction of the electrical grid in the eastern states where millions remain blacked out today, and may be for another week or two.
Consumer’s spokesman Roger Morgenstern says 30-crews jumped in their trucks, that’s 90 men and women, and headed east from their Dundee Facility yesterday. He says they all have mutual aid agreements to come to each other’s assistance in a crisis. If Michigan is ever hit by devastating wind storms, they will and have returned the favor.
