According to a release, as of 5:30 a.m. Sunday, there were 121,000 Consumers Energy customers without power.

The company has repaired almost half of the more than 2,000 wires downed by the severe weather that whipped through southeast MI over the weekend.

Almost 375,000 DTE customers are without power Sunday morning after storms ravaged southeast MI over the weekend.

"Overall, we expect to restore 80% of our customers by the end of the day on Monday".

An estimated 3,000-plus Lapeer County residents and businesses remain without power today following a quick-moving cold front Saturday evening that packed 60- to 70-mph winds that brought down trees and power lines across the county. "More than 1,100 crews are now working around the clock to restore power".

Prince George May Celebrate His 6th Birthday With an Island Getaway
He apparently selected his home as his birthday venue himself, a good sign for his parents, who want to have a "normal family". Prince George is said to be celebrating his birthday on the Caribbean island of Mustique with his parents and siblings.

Consumers Energy estimates it will have all power restored by the end of Tuesday. "More than 1,100 employees and contractors are in the field and almost 750 workers from as far as Georgia and NY have joined our restoration efforts with additional crews arriving throughout the day today". Assume all downed power lines are live and stay at least 20 feet away.

The Detroit-based utility says Michigan's Public Service Commission has granted conditional approval for the proposed purchase.
