At least six people have died during a third day of intense storms that battered Michigan's Lower Peninsula.

Sunday's storms toppled power lines and trees and cut off electricity to hundreds of thousands of customers.

Two people delivering newspapers for The Grand Rapids Press drowned overnight after the road beneath their car collapsed and it plunged into a ravine near Saugatuck.

Elsewhere in west Michigan, two other people were killed by falling trees and a man drowned while tending to a dam. A Lansing-area woman died when high winds blew a recreational vehicle on top of her, authorities said.

There were no reports of funnel cloud touchdowns, but there was still extensive wind damage.
