SOUTHFIELD (WWJ) – The overnight storm was quick — but powerful — and as a result, the morning after — parts of Oakland County are littered with tree limbs, and there are thousands without power.

WWJ’s Ron Dewey — who’s covering the storm damage — says you could tell from the heat and humidity Monday night that something was going to be brewing and, indeed, 16,000 customers are without DTE service; 12,000 of those in Oakland County. A lot of that happening in the Southfield/Farmington Hills area; WWJ Newsradio 950 and CBS Detroit.com are getting reports of trees down in the 12 Mile/Lahser area.

There are also reports of power lines that came down in the 12 Mile/Telegraph area, apparently causing damage to some cars at one car dealership.

A DTE Energy spokesman says crews are working to get power restored and they’re hoping to have everyone’s lights back on by sometime Monday night.

Stay tuned to WWJ Newsradio 950 and check back with CBS Detroit.com for updates.
