Update, 3 p.m. Sunday: Power to many of Dearborn's homes and businesses was restored faster than expected. By Sunday afternoon, outages were down to around 1,000 total across the city.
Across the Detroit Edison service area, 103,000 customers remained without service as of Sunday afternoon, DTE reported. That number was down from a high of 117,000 Saturday night.
DTE Energy reminds residents that they should still report any outages or downed power lines by calling 800-477-4747. Outages can also be reported online here.
Heavy thunderstorms Saturday that swept through much of southeast Michigan left thousands of DTE customers without power.
In Dearborn, more than 4,000 homes and businesses were without power as of Saturday night, including 3,000 in the east end and more than 1,000 in the west end.
However, DTE reports that power outages in east Dearborn began late Friday night, and therefore may not have been caused by storms. DTE Energy spokesman Scott Simons said that due to the outages caused by the storm, DTE workers are not yet able to determine if Dearborn's outages are unrelated to the storms.
The DTE Outage Map shows that the most heavily affected area in Dearborn is between Ford Road north to Tireman, affecting homes from the railroad tracks east to Oakman Boulevard.
Another 1,000 are without power on the west end, with around 776 customers down just west of Outer Drive and 263 customers west of Telegraph. Both affected areas are just south of Michigan Avenue.
Estimates for power restoration vary throughout the city, from Sunday night on the east end to as late as Tuesday night on the west end.
Simons told Ferndale Patch Saturday night that crews were already out working to restore power, but continued storms throughout the night delayed the process.
"It's hard to say (when power will be restored) because the storm is still blowing through our service area," Simons .
