SOUTHFIELD, Mich. – Nearly one million Michigan households were without power after severe storms blew through the Midwest.
Wisconsin, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois all saw outages, but Michigan seems to have been hit the hardest, having more than 10 times the outages than the other states.
Some homeowners in Oakland County were without power for seven days. They want to know why it took so long for power to be restored.
Residents in Southfield and Lathrup Village said it’s unacceptable and now their mayors are looking to DTE Energy and demanding a change.
They’re hoping it will lead to a town hall with DTE and its customers -- many of whom have lost faith in the utility.
