Crews From Several States Help Restore Power In Michigan

WARREN, Mich. (AP) — Crews from several states are helping to restore power to tens of thousands of customers without service in Michigan after a weekend storm brought freezing rain, high winds and snow.

DTE Energy says early Tuesday about 145,000 of its customers had no electricity after service to 245,000 others was restored. Most should have power back by the end of Tuesday, including most schools.

DTE says more than 1,000 workers will be in the field along with 600 from Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Tennessee.

Consumers Energy had about 130,000 Michigan outages and restored power to most by Monday night.

In Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, just over 2 feet (0.6 meters) of snow was reported in Ishpeming and Menominee.

On Tuesday, fresh snow fell in parts of Michigan, Indiana, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
