DTE: 2,700 homes, businesses still without power
After a Sunday night of high winds in Metro Detroit, some 2,700 DTE Energy customers are still without power in Southeast Michigan, the energy company confirmed Monday morning.
Oakland, Wayne and St. Clair counties are the hardest hit by the outages, which owe to a wind storm that reached 45 miles per hour at some points. The 2,700 outages are down from 4,000 earlier Monday. At its height, some 25,000 customers were affected.
Crews are working 16-hour shifts and hope to have power restored at the “vast majority” of the buildings without it restored at some point Monday, DTE said in a statement.
The DTE Energy Outage Map, updated every 15 minutes, shows speckled outages throughout Metro Detroit, with larger outages affecting 500-1,500 customers each on the east and west sides of Detroit, as well as Belleville.
