For those still out of power following Sunday's storm, good news.

Consumers Energy says the last of the out-of-power customers should have power returned a day earlier.

"We are advising forward the estimated restoration time for those hardest hit areas following Sunday's storms from late day Saturday to Friday end of the day."

Mary Palkovich, vice president of Energy Services for Consumers Energy, says thanks to favorable weather and crews from other states, only 42 thousand customers are out of power, down from over 120 thousand on Monday.
