Update: Power Outage in the Woods

About 1,400 Grosse Pointe Woods residents are without power Sunday evening.

About 1,400 DTE customers in the northern portion of Grosse Pointe Woods are without power, according to a DTE outage map.

The majority of customers without service in an area east of Mack, north of Vernier, and just east of Marter, extending to the northern city limits.

A smaller area, approximately west of Mack, south of old 8 Mile and to Hollywood, is also without power. 

Service was lost about 4:45 p.m. due to a failed transformer, according to Nixle alert, and is expected to be restored between 7:30 - 9:30 p.m. Sunday.

Update at 11:32 p.m. from Grosse Pointe Woods: Power is restored in Grosse Pointe Woods, with the exception of the businesses along the west side of Mack Avenue from Roslyn to Ridgement. DTE crews are working to restore power to that area as soon as possible.

Patch will update the story as information becomes available.

​Until DTE has to PAY compensation to those who are impacted by these outages they will never fix these outages. Someone need to write a law that forces utilities to compensate for damaged electrical appliances, food, pain and suffering, etc! This has to STOP!!! Or have the utilities pay for each house impacted for a whole home generator!

Been to community meetings and still have to deal w/DTE mess! Been here over (17) years and really tired of the fires...outages, dealing w/insurance companies!! They promised a fix and still hasn't been repaired! The city should be putting pressure on them as well!
