The city of Detroit, Wayne County, Wayne State University, Redford
and Livonia were hit by the power failure at 12:45pm.  Detroit airport
is operating on emergency power.  Detroit Public Lighting's computer
center also lost power.  DPL is hooking up portable generators to its
computer center so it can then determine the exent of the outage and
when it will be repaired.

Associated Press reports repeated calls to DPL resulted in a busy signal.
