UPDATE: Storm knocks out power to 300-plus in Farmington, Hills

More than 300 Farmington area DTE customers lost power Tuesday evening, as a line of strong storms blew through the area.

DTE originally estimated most customers would have their power restored by 11 p.m. Tuesday. By Wednesday morning, that estimate stretched to 3:30 p.m. Wednesday. In all, 36,000 metro Detroit customers lost power in the storm.
