200K without power in Mich after second storm in nine days

Royal Oak – Fay Baker lost power during Great Winter Storm I last week and lost it again during Great Winter Storm II on Friday.

She is frosty and not like the snowman.

“It’s pretty unbelievable,” the Royal Oak resident said. “The first one was a nightmare. This one. . .”

She didn’t finish the sentence and didn’t have to. The second storm in nine days knocked out electricity to more than 200,000 customers of DTE Energy, the utility said.

At 2:45 p.m., the utility reported 194,443 customers without power, down from 205,631 at 11:30 a.m., and 91% of its customers were unaffected.
