Storms Leave Thousands With No Power

DTE Energy says about 47,000 customers in Metro Detroit woke up Tuesday morning without electricity. The utility is repairing damage caused by severe thunderstorms on Monday. Spokesman Scott Simons says most of the outages should be fixed by Tuesday night. The storms carried wind gusts up to 70 mph, and heavy rains that caused flooding on many area roads and freeways.
