Storms bringing 60 mile-per-hour winds and heavy rain wrecked havoc on the Detroit area on Tuesday, flooding expressways, downing trees and causing major power outages.
By Wednesday morning some metro schools were closed and thousands of homes were still without power in Plymouth and Plymouth Township.
According to DTE Energy Crew Leader, Keith Babcock, there were almost 20,000 homes affected that still didn’t have power or were experiencing brownouts.
