All buildings in the Perry school district will be closed on Friday due to power issues.  On Thursday, Perry High School was closed due to a power outage.
Power outages have also impacted nearby communities in the recent days.  On Tuesday, from East Lansing to DeWitt, a blackout affected numerous traffic lights for a short period of time when a Lansing Board of Water & Light substation unexpectedly "tripped," WLNS-TV reports.
Consumers Energy's website was experiencing difficulties on Friday morning but appeared to show outages affecting a small number of customers in Perry but did not indicate an estimated time of restoration.
