More than 100,000 still without power in Michigan

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- More than 100,000 Michigan residents remain without power after a weekend ice storm struck much of the state.

Utilities say 105,650 of 533,000 affected homes and businesses still are without electrical service.

Jackson-based CMS Energy Corp. says 89,250 of its customers were offline Thursday morning. It says 348,000 of them have lost power at one time or another since the storm hit Saturday night.

Detroit-based DTE Energy Co. says about 12,000 of the 150,000 affected customers remain blacked out.

Lansing Board of Water & Light said Thursday the capital city's power system has about 4,400 customers offline out of 35,000 affected.

DTE says it expects "the vast majority of customers impacted will be restored sometime" Thursday.

Some CMS customers may have to wait until Saturday to get power back.

    The city of Detroit says workers and retirees have approved pension cuts, a crucial step to emerging from the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history. The city reported results Monday after two months of balloting ended July 11. A judge still must hold a trial to determine if Detroit's overall bankruptcy plan is fair and feasible, but support from retirees is vital.
