Power Outages Alert

DTE Energy says more than 90,000 people are still without power after high winds and rain took out power across southeast Michigan. The total is down from nearly 150,000 Saturday night.
 
Most of the outages are located in Wayne and Oakland counties. Right now, there are 50,000 people without power in Wayne, 25,000 in Oakland, 6,000 in Macomb and 3,000 in Washtenaw.
 
DTE says they expect most of the power to be restored by late Sunday night, but some customers will be out until Tuesday.
 
More than 1,000 power lines were knocked down after wind gusts reached more than 40 mph Saturday.
 
If you see a downed power line, stay at least 20 feet away and do not come in contact with them. Also, do not cross yellow caution tape.
