UPDATED: Overnight Storms Take Out Power for About 2,000 Farmington Area Homes

Power has been out since early this morning for residents in a wide swath from 8 Mile to 11 Mile. The outage also affects two Farmington schools, which are operating on partial power.

UDPATE: announced on its Facebook page this morning that storm damage has closed its swimming pool. 

According to the post: "We have multiple power lines down, too many tree limbs in and around the pool. At this point, we are waiting for DTE to remove and fix the downed power lines and restore power. Once the power is restored, the grounds and pool will be cleared of the tree branches, and the pool will need to be shocked." 

About 2,000 Farmington area residents remain without power this morning, after overnight storms that took out power lines and damaged trees. 

According to the DTE Energy outage center map, the largest groups of homes affected are in Farmington north of Freedom and east of Gill, and north and south of Grand River east of Maple. In Farmington Hills, the largest outages are reported west of Gill and south of Nine Mile, between Shiawassee and Grand River east of Orchard Lake Rd., and between 9 Mile and 11 Mile Roads from Middlebelt to Inkster.

This morning, Farmington Schools sent out a notice to parents that both and schools are operating on partial power. The email indicated that DTE estimated power restoration by noon. 

Power is also out in scattered neighborhoods through both communities.

The outage center map indicates power will be restored in most areas by late this afternoon. 

According to a report this morning in the Detroit Free Press, outages affected around 19,000 homes in Oakland and Macomb county.
