Approximately 1,200 DTE customers in Grosse Pointe Woods are without power following what one resident described as a loud boom earlier this afternoon.
The DTE outage map shows the estimated restoration to be between 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday. The outage is in the neighborhood that has been plagued with power problems for years.
Earlier this summer, the neighborhood was without power for a weekend during one of the heat waves. The outage spurred residents and business owners to share their unhappiness with Grosse Pointe Woods council.
The council requested informational follow-up meetings for the community that will allow residents to have details about what happened with the weekend outage. Mayor Robert Novitke said late last week that a specific date had yet to be set.
Related to today's outage, DTE crews have been spotted working in the area. A large crew was working near Goethe and Roslyn.
Patch is attempting to get more information about what caused today's outage.
