The National Weather Service issued high wind warnings across most of the state through Sunday evening as weather officials forecasted 25 to 30 mph winds and gusts up to 60 mph. As of this morning, the DTE outage map show about 4,500 Livingston County customers are without power. The outages are scattered across the county, with no estimates listed for service restoration.
