As a result of a severe storm Friday night in Washtenaw County, DTE Energy has confirmed approximately 4,000 customers — mostly in the southeast area of the county — have been left without power.
"The storm had winds of up to 45 miles per hour," said Scott Simons, spokesperson for DTE. "Branches were falling, trees were falling, and they're bound to hit power lines."
While other areas were hit much harder than Washtenaw County, Simons said there still is some work to be done before the power is restored.
"We expect 90 percent of our customers to have their power back by (Sunday) night," he said.
The National Weather Service says the weather is expected to calm down, as well as cool down (a little) throughout the next week.
