NORTHVILLE, Mich. (WXYZ) - Northville’s fire chief reported major outages throughout the city due to severe storms that swept through the area. Crews are working to restore electricity, but it will take time.
Neighborhoods across the city were hit hard when high winds and lightning rolled through on Friday evening. Particularly hard hit were neighborhoods around 8 Mile and North Center Street. Many trees came down, crushing parts of homes and sending residents fleeing outside into the elements.
