This DTE power outage map shows the storm paths through the area for the storms of May 23, 2011 pretty clearly. Note the track along Michigan Avenue and then heading a bit to the north via the Davison; you're looking for when individual purple dots turn to green, yellow, orange and then red.

The red dot on the map and the worst hit individual zone is in Westland, with over 4400 customers out in an area bounded by Wayne Road, Merriman Road, Cherry Hill Road and Michigan Avenue. The Nixle alert from Westland from about 5:54 p.m. reads
