Kent County Emergency Management Update September 12, 2019 11:00 a.m.
Consumers Energy and its partners are making good progress on power restoration efforts. Residents should be aware however, that power restoration estimates may fluctuate today as crews transition from emergency response to investigating and addressing power outages as they are reported and/or discovered.
The National Weather Service and Kent County Emergency Management will be continuing their assessments today and will continue until complete.
To get connected with recovery resources or to report storm damage, residents are encouraged to call United Way 2-1-1. If you have an emergency, call 9-1-1. To report a down power line call 1-800-477-5050 and 9-1-1 We encourage you to still report notable storm damage to 211 even if you don’t need resource assistance, Those reports assist Emergency Management with understanding where the mostly heavily impacted areas are, which helps us to allocate the appropriate resources where they are needed the most.
We are asking motorists to avoid the following roads while crews clear debris:
