Possible Power Outage

Happy New Year and good morning.  

There was a train derailment overnight in the City of Romulus, Eureka and I-275 area going north to Northline Road. In a separate incident, one of the pieces of construction equipment snagged an overhead communication line causing the pole to flex and snapped some powerlines.  DTE shut down power to power to parts of Huron Township. The trains contents were all steel cargo and did not contain any hazardous material. No injuries were reported. 

This is all of the information we have at this time. We will update you should we receive further information from either CSX or the City of Romulus.
