Thunderstorms down trees, power lines in Michigan
Mio — A string of thunderstorms has knocked down trees and power lines in parts of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula.
WPBN-TV reports the storms caused damage from Grand Traverse County to Oscoda County on Thursday, with winds of up to 70 mph.
No injuries were reported.
Trees were down in the village of Fife Lake, causing power outages. The storm moved into Crawford County, where crews worked for hours to untangle power lines. In Oscoda County, most of Mio was without all power throughout the afternoon.
In Midland County, the National Weather Service says a 60-foot-tall tree was downed near Sanford Lake. Damage was blamed on strong winds.
