LANSING - 6:23P.M. - Strong storms that blew through Michigan on Sunday left thousands of people in the dark.

Hardest hit in the 6 News viewing area seemed to be the area just east of Lansing, along the Ingham/Livingston county line.

According to DTE Energy's website, as many as 7,000 people are out of power in the areas around Dansville, Williamston, Webberville, and Fowlerville.

Thousands more are without power in various parts of the Consumers Energy coverage area. The worst hit areas include

  • An area north of DeWitt in Clinton County
  • A stretch of land from Perry to Durand in Shiawassee County
  • A stretch of land from Holt to Mason down U.S. 127
  • A large stretch of land from Eaton Rapids to Albion down Highway 99

The city of Lansing seemed to escape much of the damage, though. The Lansing Board of Water says fewer than 100 customers are in the dark.
