Power outage gives kids a day off

 

A blown fuse in a Consumers Energy tower early Tuesday morning gave kids in Cedar Springs an early Christmas present—a day off of school.

The electricity went off about 7:10 a.m. on Tuesday, December 15. According to Roger Morgenstern, of Consumers Energy, the outage affected about 507 customers, including the Cedar Springs Public Schools campus.

Citing a long-term power outage, the Cedar Springs Public School district cancelled classes for the day, and returned students home on buses.

“At the time, we estimated restoration at about 10:30 a.m., because we were not sure what potential for damage may have been done,” explained Morgenstern.

Power was restored at 8:45 a.m.

“Sometimes it’s an animal or a tree limb that causes the outage. But we didn’t find anything. It was just a fuse that blew, so we put one back in and it restored power,” said Morgenstern.

He said the tower is located in the 14000 block of Myers Lake Ave.
