PORT HURON, Mich. (AP) - Storms delivering rain and high winds throughout Michigan have left thousands without power.

DTE Energy reports Saturday morning that 25,000 customers in the southeastern part of the state are in the dark. That’s down from about 42,000 affected by the high winds that started Friday and continued Saturday.

The Detroit-based utility says hard-hit areas include the St. Clair County communities of Port Huron and Marysville. Wind gusts of up to 50 mph were reported.

DTE says it expects to restore power to most customers by Saturday night.

Consumers Energy says about 8,000 of its customers lost power statewide, but the Jackson-based utility had lowered that to about 2,800 by Saturday morning. About 1,200 of those are in Genesee County.

It expects to have the majority restored by Saturday afternoon.
