The February 2023 ice storm decimated the already under-invested in infrastructure of DTE’s electric grid. Over 620,000 customers were impacted across Southeast Michigan and many still today have not had their power restored after 7 days of no power. Eric Lau of Michigan Daily created this timeline map of DTE outage data from their outage map’s API, Kubra Storm Center.
