WARREN, Michigan — Police in suburban Detroit say a 61-year-old man was electrocuted when he came in contact with a power line that was knocked down during the weekend's severe thunderstorms.

Police in Warren didn't immediately identify the man who died Wednesday. The Detroit News and WDIV-TV say the man was landlord of the home and lived in Macomb County's Clinton Township.

The power line belongs to DTE Energy Co., which says 186,000 of its customers lost power in Sunday's storms. The Detroit-based company says all but 6,000 had their power back by 4 p.m. Wednesday.

Jackson-based CMS Energy Corp. says it's finished restoring power to the 37,000 homes and businesses blacked out in Sunday's storms.
