Some residents of Gogebic County were still without power Friday as a result of Wednesday night's windstorm.

An outage map for We Energies, which serves the eastern part of the county, showed roughly 250 homes in rural Watersmeet were still without power as of Friday afternoon. The outage map said power may not be restored to some areas until Saturday evening.

The Wisconsin-based company said it has restored power to more than 145,000 customers and expects to have 98% of customers restored by Friday night.

"Extra crews are arriving from across the Midwest, joining the more than 200 workers we already have in the field," the company said in a news release.

Gogebic County Emergency Management said people who are in need of shelter or a power source can call the Watersmeet Township Supervisor at 906-364-3136.
