DTE customers affected by severe weather in southeast Michigan Sunday, 7/21/19 6:00 am EDT
As of 6 a.m. on Sunday, July 21, approximately 375,000 DTE Energy customers are without power as a result of two waves of severe weather that moved through southeast Michigan Friday and Saturday. DTE Energy crews are currently assessing damage to the energy grid; restoration estimates will be available when assessments are complete.
DTE also posted a video update on social media regarding outage restoration times.
“We understand the frustration you’re feeling as you try to go about your day-to-day activities without power. Before we could provide updated restoration estimates today, we needed to assess damage from last night’s storm. Our crews have assessed the damage on the energy grid — including 1,100 downed lines from fallen trees — and we expect to have restoration estimates available for you this afternoon,” the company said in a Facebook post.
Thousands of customers in the Huron and surrounding areas remain without power as of Sunday, according to the DTE outage map.
