Ongoing issues with Detroit’s aging electrical grid have been a continuing concern in the bankrupt city; and outages such as Wednesday’s are not uncommon. Last week more than 20 DPS schools were closed for a couple of days because of power problems.
Attributed to “system overload”, a widespread outage last summer shut down power to Wayne State University, the Frank Murphy Hall of Justice, the City-County building, and midtown museums for two days.MORE NEWS: 'Plus-Up' Stimulus Checks Going Out To Those Who Were Underpaid
