PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) - Michigan’s largest utilities say crews are working to finish restoring power to about 35,000 homes and business without service following three days of storms packing high winds.

Detroit-based DTE Energy Co. says that about 28,000 of its 150,000 affected customers were offline Tuesday morning, including 15,000 in Oakland County, 5,000 in Wayne County and 2,000 in Macomb County. Crews from Ohio, Indiana and Wisconsin are assisting.

Jackson-based CMS Energy Corp. says 7,000 of its more than 149,000 affected Consumers Energy customers were without service Tuesday morning. Outages include about 1,950 in Montcalm County, about 800 in Newaygo County and about 770 in Muskegon County.

In addition to Consumers Energy workers and contractors, more than 100 line workers from Indiana and Ohio are assisting the utility.
