Thousands Lose Power In Thursday Storms

DETROIT (WWJ) – About 24,000 homes and business lost power early Thursday evening across Metro Detroit.

DTE spokesman Alejandro Bodipo-Memba said the outage are due to some gusty storms and the humid, 90-plus degree weather the area has been enduring over the past few days.

He said the outage had likely hit its peak by 7:30 p.m.

The outages were scattered, and included the Rochester and Shelby Township area.

Bodipo-Memba said DTE crews will be working throughout the night in an attempt to get the lights back on for everyone by morning.

DTE is constantly updating a power outage map to show residents where to expect the worst. Click here to check the map.
