WWJ -- Thousands of DTE Energy customers were again left without power Sunday night and Monday morning after a round of thunderstorms moved across southeast Michigan.

DTE says 15,000 homes and businesses were in the dark as of 8 a.m. Monday, down from 21,000 on Sunday night. 

The heaviest hit area was western Oakland County near the border of Livingston County, where more than 6,000 customers were without power in the areas of Springfield Township, Davisburg and Rose Township. DTE is still investigating the cause of the outage and working to restore power.

The newest round of outages comes a week after more than half a million Michiganders were without power following a rash of severe weather.

Just under 3,000 customers in the Almont area lost power due to an equipment problem.

Spokesperson Cynthia Hecht says power should be back on for most customers by the end of the day today.
