PORT HURON, Mich. (AP) — Utility crews may work into Saturday to restore all electrical service to the last pockets of Michigan homes and businesses without power following high winds earlier in the week.
Detroit-based DTE Energy Co. says about 5,000 of its customers were without power late Thursday morning, and most were expected to have power restored by day's end. DTE's Detroit Edison unit had at least 120,000 customers that lost service amid the state's brush with superstorm Sandy.
DTE's Detroit Edison unit serves about 2.1 million electricity customers.
Jackson-based CMS Energy Corp.'s said Wednesday all of its affected customers had power back. About 34,000 of the utility's customers lost power.
CMS's Consumers Energy unit serves about 1.8 million Michigan electricity customers.
