According to the DTE outage map, the largest pockets of outages have been taken care of, and DTE will now be working to restore power to smaller area outages.
DTE Energyspokesman Alejandro Bodipo-Memba said the company has restored power to all but 75,000 customers in Metro Detroit after 325,000 lost power during the storm.
"We have crews working 16 hour shifts and we have brought in people from Indiana, Pennsylvania, and New York to help us handle these outages," he said.
DTE expects to restore power to 90 percent of those affected by late Friday night, while the final customers will have to wait into the weekend.
