Washtenaw County and American Red Cross open overnight warming center
While some households have had their power restored since yesterday, just over 65k DTE customers and 4k Consumers Energy Customers are still without power. Modest restoration estimates report a return of power on Sunday.
Washtenaw County and the America Red Cross will operate an overnight warming center from 6:00 pm tonight through 8:00 am tomorrow morning at the Learning Resource Center (4135 Washtenaw). Basic needs will be addressed including blankets, water, heat, and ready-to-eat meals.
“No one was turned away last night so that means it was a success,” said Administrator Gregory Dill of the overnight warming center at the Eagle Crest Conference Center, which closed this morning. “We’re adapting and have coordinated two other sites, one in the eastern county and one out west, to continue to provide basic needs for families. This is our priority until the power is restored to every home.”
