GLEN ARBOR, Michigan — Crews are making progress restoring power to tens of thousands of Michigan homes and businesses left without electrical service following severe storms.
CMS Energy Corp.'s Consumers Energy Unit says about 42,000 of 158,000 of its customers left without power since storms Sunday and early Monday were without service early Tuesday.
Most should be back late Wednesday. In Leelanau, Grand Traverse and Ogemaw counties, complete restoration is expected Thursday.
DTE Energy Co. says as of Monday night it restored power to more than 72,000 of its 95,000 customers who lost service. Most of the rest should be back on Tuesday night.
Violent winds uprooted trees, snapped branches and spoiled the landscape in some of the state's most popular tourist spots. At least one tornado was confirmed in Owendale in Huron County.
