Thousands still without power after Michigan storms


Thousands of customers remain without power after thunderstorms swept across Michigan s Lower Peninsula earlier this week.

Consumers Energy says about 32,000 homes and businesses that it serves were without electricity Saturday morning. It says about 210,000 of its customers lost power in storms that began Wednesday afternoon.

The subsidiary of CMS Energy Corp. expects to restore power to most customers by the end of the day Saturday, but says parts of Calhoun, Kalamazoo and Kent counties might not have service until Sunday.

Most of DTE Energy Co. s customers that lost power in the storms had service back by Friday.

Thunderstorms with heavy rain, hail, strong winds and frequent lightning moved through the state Wednesday and Thursday.
