Nov 20 (Reuters) - Over 130,000 homes and businesses in the
U.S. Midwest remained without power on Wednesday morning
following severe thunderstorms Sunday night, according to local
power companies.
    There had been over 800,000 outages on Monday morning. 
    Michigan was the hardest-hit state, with more than 120,000
customers still out.
    DTE Energy Co, the biggest power company in the
state, said it had about 76,000 customers out, down from over
300,000 at the peak.

several days to restore service to all homes and businesses.
    Other hard-hit states with ongoing outages include Indiana
and Illinois.
