Thousands Remain Without Power After Storms

DETROIT (WWJ) – DTE Energy said about 18,000 of its customers were without electricity Wednesday morning. High winds and heavy rain are to blame for most of the outages.

The problem areas are scattered across Metro Detroit, but some of the bigger problem areas include Warren and Auburn Hills.

No word as to exactly when the power will be restored.

Because of the weather and the resulting power outages, several schools are closed.

    I think it’s ridiculous that we continue to lose power in Auburn Hills at least 4 times a year. The winds weren’t that high yesterday. perhaps if the tree lines were better maintained, we wouldn’t have so many problems. According to DTE’s website, Auburn Hills isn’t even on the list of areas for the trees to be trimmed in November or December. What further frustrates me is that my family and I stayed in our home last night because the restoration time on the website was supposed to take place between 9:30 and 11:30 pm. When we woke up this morning to a house that was 50 degrees, we found that they changed the restoration time to 8pm today! Really? Your restoration estimate was off by more than 24 hours? Forget lack of customer service, let’s talk about lack of social responsibility.
