Storms knock out power to 125,000 in SE Michigan
Michigan utility crews are working to restore power to tens of thousands of homes and businesses. Last night’s storms knocked out power for 125,000 customers.
The severe thunderstorms hit the southeast corner of the state, with hail and winds up to 64 miles per hour that knocked down trees and power lines.
The storms focused on metro Detroit and Michigan's rural thumb area. DTE Energy says 95,000 homes and businesses remain without service and a few will have to wait until Tuesday to get their power back.
The hardest hit areas include Dearborn Heights and Dearborn, west of Detroit.
