GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (WOOD) — More than 5,600 homes and businesses in the Grand Haven area lost power late Wednesday afternoon.
The Grand Haven Board of Light and Power's interactive outage map shows the power went out around 5:45 p.m. As of just before 7 p.m., service had been restored to downtown. Power was back for just around everyone by 8:30 p.m.
The cause of the outage is not yet known, but Ottawa County dispatchers said it was not caused by a car crash.
There wasn't expected to be any affect on the Fourth of July festivities happening along the Grand Haven channel near Lake Michigan.
With temperatures above 90 degrees nearly everywhere in West Michigan — and even above 80 on the beach — and heat indices climbing over 100 in some places, this Fourth of July was the hottest since 2012.
