DETROIT (WWJ) – Large pockets of power outages across metro Detroit are impacting more than 4,000 DTE Energy customers.

Homes and businesses started reporting the outages early Thursday morning. In one instance, the traffic lights are out at the corner of 8 Mile Road and Gratiot Avenue, with reports of near misses between impatient drivers as the morning commute ramps up.

Other large areas with outages this morning include the Grosse Pointes, Ferndale and Dearborn Heights.


DTE Energy crews are now troubleshooting the outages, but had no estimate for when power would be restored.

    What’s going on? There are no high winds or rain. No stormy weather and no REASON for a power outage. This is weird and seems engineered. This is an annoying inconvenience. Please turn our power back on. Detroit has been through MORE THAN ENOUGH with the outage in March. No more. No thanks!

    Why has Michigan become the power outage state? I’m over this. Evil ‘liberal’ men and women are behind this in my opinion. They’re the reason Detroit is a slum yet they DESPISE the residents so badly that they have to allow things like this to happen. Hateful people! Some days they WILL answer to GOD for it!
