    Michigan forecast calls for more unbearable heat, showers

    Utility crews — again — worked through the early morning hours to restore power to tens of thousands of Michigan homes and businesses that had lost it during violent storms Tuesday night that swept across the state. 

    The state’s two largest utilities — DTE Energy and Consumers Energy — reported at about 10 p.m. Tuesday, more than 126,000 power customers had been affected by the storm. By early Wednesday, that number had been cut by nearly 40%, to less than 80,000. 

    And on top of being powerless, Michiganders in metro Detroit also face a heat advisory from 1-8 p.m. Wednesday. The mercury is expected to rise into the 90s, but with the humidity, it will feel like it’s 100 — or more, forecasters said.

    Residents who now have no electricity to help them keep cool, the stifling temperatures could even be lethal.
