Utilities Work To Restore Power To About 100,000

Posted: Updated:

VICKSBURG, Mich. (AP) - Utilities say they're working to restore power to roughly 100,000 homes and businesses in Michigan still without electrical service following severe thunderstorms.

Storms that moved through the state late Monday and early Tuesday toppled trees and knocked out power to more than 247,000 customers. Storm debris damaged property and blocked some streets in western Michigan, while heavy rains flooded some roads.

DTE Energy Co. says about 140,000 of its customers lost power, and about 42,000 were still out early Wednesday. It says crews from New York, Ohio, Indiana and Pennsylvania are participating in the restoration effort.

CMS Energy Corp.'s Consumers Energy unit says about 27,000 of 70,000 affected customers were without power. And Indiana Michigan Power said about 31,000 of its 37,000 affected Michigan customers were offline Tuesday night.
