More than 4,000 people were without power in the Ypsilanti and Superior Township area Friday afternoon, according to DTE Energy.

DTE spokeswoman Erica Donerson said 4,147 DTE customers east of Ann Arbor lost power at 12:30 p.m. Friday. The DTE Outage map showed the affected area went as far west as the Radrick Farms Golf Course, north to Cherry Hill Road, east to Ridge Road and south to Holmes Road.

Storms began rolling through Washtenaw County again Friday afternoon, a day after 2.5 inches of rain caused flooding in Ann Arbor. About 3,700 people lost power in that storm, with about 100 customers still without power as of 8:45 a.m. Friday, according to DTE.

Donerson said it’s still too early to tell how long the affected area will be without power.

Kyle, I went on the DTE outage map a few minutes ago and it says there are all kinds of outages including my area. My power is on and I just drove around and the whole area seems to have power. any ideas from your contacts at DTE?

I'm in SE A2 and we just randomly lost power about 15 minutes ago.

I have a suggestion: how about some news gathering and reporting about the extent and location of yesterday's flooding? I would appreciate learning about flooding that may have taken place along the Allen Creek, the properties adjacent to the Huron and its tributaries, and the Scio Church area where footing drains have been disconnected. The videos are amusing, but not journalism.

Are you on the wrong article here, bud? DTE outage alerts are pretty common news items, many find them handy.
