DETROIT (AP) -

Crews are working to restore power to thousands of homes and businesses following severe thunderstorms that moved through Michigan.

Major utilities report more than 29,000 customers are without power across the state on Friday morning.

DTE Energy Co. says about 25,000 of its customers didn't have power after about 75,000 were affected by storms that struck Thursday. The hardest-hit areas are in Wayne, Oakland and Washtenaw counties. High winds Friday could cause additional outages.

CMS Energy Corp.'s Consumers Energy unit says about 4,400 of its customers were without service, including about 2,300 in Iosco County. The utility reported having about 7,000 outages Thursday.
