DETROIT (AP) — Around 120,000 customers are without power a day after severe thunderstorms struck parts of southern Michigan.
Tuesday's storms brought 60 mile-per-hour wind gusts that knocked down trees and power lines and blacked out about 169,000 electricity customers.
DTE Energy Co. says 120,000 customers remain powerless Wednesday morning. About 80,000 of those are in Wayne County. The others are in Livingston, Macomb, Oakland, St. Clair and Washtenaw counties.
The utility says the majority of customers should have their power restored by late Wednesday.
Flooding closed parts of some Detroit-area expressways Tuesday evening.
