P0wer Outage Could Last Until Thursday Night
(Crystal A. Proxmire, 7/20/2011)
Power is out for over 5,000 area residents as heat and over-use has overloaded the electrical grid in the area. Outages have been reported in patches through out Metro Detroit, with areas along Woodward Ave. being most affected in our city. According to the DTE Website: “Based on crew availability, the number of customers out and current weather conditions, we anticipate that your power should be restored between Thu Jul 21 2011 09:30 PM , and Thu Jul 21 2011 11:30 PM. “
The map below shows areas that have reported problems earlier in the evening. UPDATE: At 10:40pm on Wednesday some areas of the city regained power although street lights and traffic signals were still out. Road Closed Barricades prevented people from crossing Woodward at Marshall.
