DETROIT (AP) - Tens of thousands of Michigan homes and businesses remain without electrical service after heavy rains and high winds struck the Lower Peninsula.

Detroit-based DTE Energy Co. says about 40,000 of its customers were without power Sunday evening. It says about 150,000 of the homes and businesses it serves lost power in Saturday’s storms.

Jackson-based CMS Energy Corp. says almost all of about 4,000 affected customers were back online Sunday morning.

The National Weather Service says that wind gusts reached 38 miles per hour Saturday at Detroit Metropolitan Airport and Ypsilanti. It’s issued flood warnings for Branch, Hillsdale and St. Joseph counties.

The weather service also issued beach warnings for high waves and currents along Lake Huron from Port Huron to the tip of the Thumb.
