As of 6:30 pm, Monday evening, June 12, over 6,600 customers have lost power in the city of Ypsilanti, according to DTE. As temperatures soared above the 90 degree mark during the day it appears that the electrical grid may have been over taxed from the use of air conditioners. According to DTE, the estimated restoration time is 11 pm for Ypsilanti.
Temperatures are expected to be in the mid to high 80's throughout the rest of the week.
Stay tuned for updates.
