“Hi there @DTE_Energy I’ve reported our outage via your app but I’m wondering if you have an update. Thank you!,” wrote Melissa Gilbert, whose spunky character, Laura Ingalls on the beloved TV show, could weather any storm.
Wednesday, dangerously high winds toppled trees, downed power lines and was the cause of a record number of power outages in the state.
DTE replied that public safety is their priority.READ MORE: Police Arrest Man Accused Of Killing 64-Year-Old Detroit Store Clerk During Robbery
In the last of the tweets Gilbert let DTE know that while they are equipped with a generator, gas can be a challenge to get, with the recent outages and all — but thanked them all the same for all of their hard work.
