Hundreds Of Schools Close Amid Power Outage

BLOOMFIELD HILLS (WWJ) – Hundreds of schools are closed Thursday because of power outages left behind from Wednesday’s damaging winds.

DTE Energy says crews are working to restore service to more than 670,000 homes and businesses in southeast Michigan — and those restoration efforts could last through the weekend. 

Because the area is without power, hundreds of schools across the metro area are closed Thursday. Many may remain closed Friday if the power is not restored.
