    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 3,911customers remained without electricity early Wednesday. Many spots with 99 or fewer outages were scattered throughout Metro Detroit. 

    As of Wednesday afternoon there are 398 crews working out in the field trying to restore electricity to residents. 

    Consumers reported Tuesday that 1,408 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, with clusters near Tekonsha, Jonesville and Burr Oak Township in Southwest Michigan. 

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