DETROIT (AP) — Winds that gusted to 60 miles per hour have swept across Michigan, knocking down trees and power lines and cutting off electrical service to at least 195,000 homes and businesses.

Detroit-based DTE Energy Co. says 120,000 of its southeastern Michigan customers lost power in the overnight storm, and about 84,000 remained blacked out late Sunday afternoon.

Jackson-based CMS Energy Corp. says the storms knocked 75,000 of its customers across the Lower Peninsula off line, and about 9,500 were without service at 4:30 p.m. Sunday.

WWJ-AM says winds toppled some ice sculptures at the Plymouth Ice Festival.

The National Weather Service says blustery winds continued Sunday, with 6 p.m. temperatures ranging from zero at Ironwood in the western Upper Peninsula to 23 at Monroe and Troy in the southeast.
