Storm chaser Scott Nicholson remembers the day he first fell in love with extreme weather.
A team from the national weather service has confirmed that a pre-dawn tornado was responsible for damage in one Oakland County neighborhood.
A DTE spokesperson said that Belleville saw the most significant outages with an estimated 3,500 weather related power outages.
“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.
DTE crews have restored power to the majority of homes and businesses that lost service during a weekend storm, even as new severe weather was bearing down on Michigan’s Lower Peninsula.
About 41,000 homes and businesses remain without power Tuesday morning — down from a high of 375,000 outages.
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.
Representatives of FEMA continue their work on the ground in Metro Detroit, assessing the damage done from last month’s record rainfall and flooding.
