    DTE Energy and Consumers Energy continued to restore power outages and edged closer to full restoration early Wednesday, with just over 7,500 customers still without power.

    One week after thunderstorms and high winds hit the region and caused more than 850,000 people to lose power, DTE reports 4,853 customers remained without electricity early Wednesday. Large pockets of 100 to 500 outages remained in Detroit, with 99 or fewer outages were scattered throughout Metro Detroit.

    The company said Tuesday 2,800 crew members were in the field working to repair the outages. 

    Consumers reported Tuesday that2,690 customers remained without power early Wednesday near Burr Oak and Colon Township in southern Michigan. The utility said it had 153 crews in the field on Tuesday.

    The outages were spread out across the region Tuesday evening, with clusters near Sumpter Township, Milan and Jackson, with others reaching the southwest border with Indiana. 

    Last week’s storms were the latest in a string of bad weather this summer that has brought rain, flooding, tornadoes and power outages.
