DETROIT (WWJ)- DTE Energy is making some progress restoring power to tens of thousands of homes and businesses who lost power over the weekend.

Spokesman, Len Singer, told WWJ that 55,000 customers were still dealing with no power Monday morning.  Storms that blew threw southeastern Michigan Saturday evening are to blame.

28,000 of the remaining outages are in Wayne County.  18,000 are in Oakland County.

Singer says crews will be returning to Detroit from the east coast where they’ve been helping to get the lights back on following Hurricane Irene.  In addition, 70 crews from Indiana and Wisconsin will be in Metro Detroit to help with restoration efforts.

Singer says the majority of outages should be fixed by late Monday night with the remaining restorations coming Tuesday.

Customers should call DTE Energy at (800) 477-4747 to report a power outage or a downed power line.
