MID-MICHIGAN (WJRT) -

(12/29/13) - Both Consumers Energy and DTE Energy say a majority of customers have their power back.

As of 9:50 p.m. Sunday. the Consumers Energy outage map showed no outages in the Mid-Michigan area.

The utility says more than 3,000 office and field workers from Consumers Energy, 13 different states and Washington, D.C., were focused on the restoration effort from one of the largest storms in the utility's 126-year history.

DTE Energy released information at 6 a.m. Sunday, saying it's still working to get power back on to 900 customers - most of them in Lapeer County.

DTE says more than 1,500 employees, contractors and linemen from other utilities remain in the field today, working around the clock, to rebuild portions of the electric system section by section. They add damage is extensive and customers may see portions of their neighborhoods restored, rather than entire neighborhoods restored all at once, as work is completed.
