Ice storm leaves power outages, slick roads in its wake

LANSING, Mich (WLNS) - The weekend's ice storm has left mid-Michigan with a "good news - bad news" situation.

The bad news -- nearly 9,000 people in mid-Michigan are still in the dark this morning.

The good news -- the winter weather that hit the region this weekend is slowly moving out of the area.

We're still feeling the effects..

According to the Consumer's Energy outage map  there are nearly 400 Okemos residents in the dark.

There are also hundreds of customers near Eaton Rapids and Bunker Hill Township without power.

Crews hope to have the light back on by 11 o'clock tonight.

As we wait for all the ice to melt there's still a chance for additional outages with downed power lines and tree limbs falling in the road.

Emergency officials urge you to be aware of your surroundings.

If you see power lines down-- don't go near them.

Drivers, if you come to an intersection without traffic lights, treat it as a four way stop.

Remember to slow down during your morning commute.

There could still be slick spots on some roads.
