(WXYZ) - The storms that blew through Michigan Sunday left hundreds of thousands of people without power across metro Detroit and the state.
DTE Energy says 3,000 people are currently without power in metro Detroit. About a half million customers statewide were affected by the storms. DTE expects to have all but 10,000 turned back on by midnight Wednesday.
During a news conference Monday morning, DTE urged customers to stay far away from any downed lines and call DTE immediately at 1-800-477-4747.
DTE says that due to the severity of storms across the Midwest, restoring power may take several days. Crews are working 16-hour shifts to restore power.
