Power outage in Kent and Ottawa Counties

GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) - Thousands of people in the Grand Rapids, Grandville, Wyoming, and Jenison areas woke up without electricity Wednesday morning.

As of 6:45 am, Consumers Energy reports about 5,000 customers without power in the Grand Rapids, Wyoming, Grandville, and Jenison areas.

Initially, 11,000 customers were without power. But, Consumers crews were able to restore power to nearly 7,000 customers near Burlingame and 36th Street.

Consumers says the outage is due to a problem with a large power line in the Grandville/Wyoming area. They do not think it is weather related. Workers are investigating the cause of the outage and trying to restore the remaining power. Consumers expects the rest of the electricity to be back on by about 8 am.

Santorum campaigns in GR on Election Day

Grandville (WZZM) -  Rick Santorum kicked off his Michigan Primary Election day battle right here in West Michigan with a stop at Rainbow Grille in Grandville Tuesday morning.

He was greeted around 9:00am by a packed house of locals, many of whom had been waiting for hours.

"It was a thrill. The first time I've ever seen a presidential candidate, been that close to him," said Dave Vanhouten, Hudsonville.

"The excitement, and actually meeting somebody that could be our future president," said Lynda Stolt, Wyoming.

All the national news outlets also made the trek, but Santorum didn't speak to any media.

He shook hands and took a few pictures before taking off to his next stop, the New Beginnings Restaurant in Kentwood. His presence there also created quite the frenzy. Several customers said they waited hours for him to show up and were glad to see him face to face.
