2 p.m. update: Power had been restored for most customers in Washteanw County, except for a pocket in Scio Township, affecting about 260 customers.
Power was out for about 1,500 customers of DTE Energy in Washtenaw County, the utility said Monday morning.
Spokesman John Austerberry said the outages, concentrated in an area southeast of Saline and northeast of Ann Arbor, were likely weather related. Most customers should have power back by early afternoon, he said, and some before that.
By 9 a.m., the power had already been off for about four or five hours in the hardest-hit areas, accorded to the DTE Outage Map.
DTE reported about 12,000 customers were without power in its service area in southeast Michigan. About half of those were in the Waterford area, Austerberry said.
