Power outages plague Southeastern Michigan
Just when you thought the weather was finally getting better, Michigan proves you wrong.
As of 11:00 a.m., high winds and downed power lines Monday morning have left more than 100,000 DTE consumers in the dark.
DTE's Outage Map, below, shows the outages that have been reported across the state.
According to DTE, Oakland, Wayne, and Macomb Counties have been the hardest hit, with smaller outages scattered across the state. No estimates have been provided yet as to when power will be back in these areas, however DTE crews will be working through Tuesday to complete restoration.
For more information about what to do about downed power lines and other safety measures, visit DTE's Outage Center.
