Emergency crews across southern MI are responding to numerous reports of downed power lines and trees as high winds batter the area.

Steve Considine, a meteorologist with the National Weather Services' White Lake substation, said Livingston County has a high wind warning until 7 p.m. today.

Expect winds of 30 to 40 miles per hour with gusts around 60 miles per hour from late morning into mid afternoon.

Thousands north and south of M-46 between Hemlock and Alma are without power, according to the outage map.

DTE Energy is reporting 90,000 customers without power in southeast MI, and Consumers Energy is reporting 120,000 customers without power statewide.

The pocket outages were scattered across Lansing, and crews have already restored power to some customers, said BWL spokesman Steve Serkaian.

DeDoes reminded people to stay at least 25 feet from downed wires and always assume that they're live.

"We're in storm mode and will be working around the clock", DeDoes said.
