Power for thousands restored after storms
Detroit — After a night of storms and high winds that postponement the Tigers-Yankees game and flooded Interstate 94 in Macomb County, power was trickling back on Thursday for thousands of households and businesses in Michigan .
DTE Energy customers said "99% of 70,000 customers" had been restored by late Thursday.
Outstate, some 6,600 Consumers Energy customers remain without power as of 9:30 p.m., down from more than 54,000 residents and businesses from the storms.
Wednesday was the hottest September day of the year, with a high just shy of 90 and a low just shy of 70.
