High Winds Cause Widespread Power Outages in Dexter; Chelsea Largely Unaffected

DTE reports roughly 92,000 customers woke up without power on Sunday and repairs are underway.

High winds whipped through Washtenaw County and the majority of southeast Michigan overnight, causing some widespread power outages.

DTE reports nearly 92,000 customers awoke without power Sunday morning, the majority clustered in southern Oakland County and around Ann Arbor, according to the DTE Outage map.

The Dexter area shows more than 1,100 customers in the 48130 zip code without power. The city of Chelsea has roughly 17 homes without power as of 12:30 p.m.

The winds peaked between 50-60 mph at around 3 a.m. and prompted the National Weather Service to issue a wind advisory until 8 a.m. Winds have since subsided.

There are no listed times for estimated restoration. DTE crews are out making repairs, but the high winds are making progress difficult, according to WDIV-TV.

The forecast calls for high temperatures between 20-25 degrees with a chance for snow showers, according to the National Weather Service. Lows are expected at around 10 degrees, and won't be much better Monday when they are expected in the mid-teens. A chance of snow showers persists.
