Warming Centers Open Amid Power Outage, Bitter Cold

DETROIT (WWJ) – Dozens of warming centers are open across metro Detroit as hundreds of thousands of electricity customers remain without power due to high winds earlier in the week.

Temperatures are expected to remain cold throughout the weekend, with overnight lows in the teens or 20s and highs barely reaching 30 degrees.

As of 5 a.m. Saturday, approximately 243,000 customers remain without power — down from more than 800,000. DTE expects to have roughly 90 percent of customers restored by Sunday evening. The outages are widespread across the region, with the hardest hit areas in Wayne, Oakland, Macomb and Washtenaw counties.

Please call the location in advance to ensure available capacity and potential resources, and any parameters or restrictions. The following cities have opened warming centers for those without power:
