Storm aftermath: 3,000 DTE customers still without power in Ann Arbor area
About 3,000 DTE Energy customers were still without power in Washtenaw County Saturday morning after thunderstorms rolled through the area Friday afternoon.
About 29,000 customers were without power in the company’s service area in southeast Michigan, down from 130,000 at the height of the outages after storms raked the area Thursday.
DTE spokesman Alejandro Bodipo-Memba said the utility hoped to have power restored for all but a handful of customers by sometime Saturday.
The storms Friday, which hit shortly after noon, knocked out power for several thousand DTE customers in Washtenaw County. The bulk of the remaining outages Saturday appeared to be concentrated on the south side of Ann Arbor, according to the DTE Energy power outage map.
Friday’s storms followed severe thunderstorms Thursday, which brought significant rainfall and flooding to the Ann Arbor area.
