Strong storms battered parts of Michigan Friday.
On the southeast side of the state, 385,000 DTE Energy customers lost electric service last night; about 365,000 customers remain without power.
Wind gusts of more than 75 miles per hour caused more than 2,000 downed power lines across DTE’s service area. The utility is bringing in crews from Ohio, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania to repair the damage.
Consumers Energy says about 55,000 of their customers are waiting for power restoration. Spokeswoman Debra Dodd says Kalamazoo was particularly hard hit.
