Roughly 4,000 of the outages are Downriver, in areas of Riverview, Trenton and Taylor, as well as in Birmingham and Garden City.
DTE Energy spokesperson Steven Tait said most of the outages are due to trees knocking down power lines.
“It’s scattered pretty much throughout our service area, but we’re out there trying to restore power as safety and as efficiently as we can,” Tait told WWJ’s Scott Ryan.READ MORE: FDA Authorizes Pfizer COVID-19 Booster Shots For Children Ages 5 To 11
