A powerful low pressure system pushing east through Michigan brought winds in excess of 64 miles and hour last Wednesday knocking out power to over 9,000 Barry County Consumers Energy Customers. As of late Sunday night the electric has been restored to their Barry county customers.



The high winds tour off part of the Lakewood Early Childhood Center in Woodland Township Wednesday morning. The 200 student in the building were evacuated and removed to safety with no reported injuries. The Center will be closed Thursday.

The high winds also damage the roof of the Hastings Walldorf Brewpub and Bistro closing the popular restaurant for the time being.

Thousands of residents in Michigan are without power as a result of the damaging winds that brought down trees, limbs and powerlines and caused  widespread damage. In Barry County Consumers Energy is now reporting zero  customers are without power.
