About 2,000 homes and businesses were without power at 6 p.m., mainly in western Wayne County.
Friday is going to be a windy one in metro Detroit but once that passes, the forecast is looking gorgeous for the weekend.
“All the windows are blown out,” said homeowner Theresa Bullock.
Strong winds blew tree trunks, branches, tires, wooden pallets, ladders and other items across beaches in Michigan and Indiana.
“We lost ground because of the heavy rain,” said a DTE spokesperson.
A Flood Advisory will remain in effect for all of Southeast Michigan until 8 p.m.
Crews continue to work 16-hour shifts around the clock to restore service, with about 40,000 in Wayne County, with the rest scattered throughout Oakland, Macomb and Washtenaw counties.
DTE says full restoration probably will take until Tuesday or Wednesday.
Things are going to be hot and humid before the storm hits. Damaging wind gusts up to 60 miles per hour are expected.
We should see some sunshine; but as for how much, it’s still tough to tell, so it’ll be best to bring your umbrella wherever you go.
