Continued rain, snow, and ice precipitation have caused additional power outages and hazardous road conditions throughout Metro-Detroit, following Winter Storm Xanto.

The power at the ODMS Pontiac facility has been sporadic throughout the day and night of Monday, 4/16 and currently at partial power as of 8:00 a.m. Tuesday, 4/17. We are currently operating under our contingent power plan, offering approximately 50% capacity.

The Monday, 4/16 mailing was processed as planned and ODMS is committed to meeting processing timelines to the best of our ability throughout the remainder of the week.

Additionally, please expect transportation delays throughout today, Tuesday, 4/16, as several accidents and hazardous road conditions are creating delays on all major roadways.

The current traffic map in Metro-Detroit has several notifications detailing hazardous conditions, accidents, and closures:
