DTE customers without electricity

According to DTE Energy, about a third of the city of Eastpointe - about 4,000 homes and a couple of hundred businesses - are without power, City Manager Steve Duchane said in an email. "An additional 181 crews are arriving from utilities in Kentucky, Ohio, Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa, and in; 40 of the crews are already on the ground to assist the crews in MI".

Great Lakes said they had over 7500 members without power Wednesday afternoon. The company said its first priority is to fix downed lines.

DTE Energy recently issued a request for proposal to potentially purchase a natural gas power plant within Michigan's Lower Peninsula with a generating capacity of up to 1,200 megawatts. Watch out for downed power lines and trees.

Lauren Melcher Davis said on the DTE Energy Facebook page: "Everyone asking for restoration estimates - there are still lines being knocked down by the dozens as we speak".

Strong winds, some as fast as 60 miles per hour, fell trees and caused damage all around Detroit.

The storm, which started calming around 8 p.m. Wednesday evening, reeked havoc in the region, toppling trees and downing some 3,000 power lines, DTE said in a news release.

"Every part of the state was affected by this", he said, adding that residents should continue to be wary of downed power lines and seek safe shelter over the weekend if their power hasn't yet been restored. Gusts as high as 69-miles per hour at Willow Run Airport caused a near tragedy involving the University of MI basketball team.

Customers have three convenient ways to contact DTE during an outage.

Do not touch anything or anyone in contact with a fallen power line. If a power line falls on your vehicle, remain inside until help arrives. Operating a generator without proper ventilation can cause a buildup of carbon monoxide. A closed refrigerator will stay cold for 12 hours.
