DETROIT (AP) — Utilities were working Thursday to restore power to remaining Michigan homes and businesses still without service following this week’s severe thunderstorms.

DTE Energy Co. says power has been restored as of 9:30 p.m. to all 140,000 customers who lost service
CMS Energy Corp.‘s Consumers Energy unit says that the about 5,800 of its 70,000 affected customers still without power Thursday morning should have service restored soon.
Indiana Michigan Power says about 8,500 of its 37,000 affected Michigan customers were offline Thursday night.
