Hundreds of thousands of Michigan homes and offices remain without power today as a result of five days of thunderstorms.

The storms killed six people and blacked out at least 680,000 utility customers.

Utilities say some of their about 247,000 customers still without service this morning will have to wait until at least Friday to get their power back.

Strong winds and torrential rains that hit Friday through Sunday brought down trees and power lines, washed away roads and flooded garages, basements and farm fields.

The deaths happened Sunday, when two people drowned in a road collapse, two were killed by falling trees, one drowned while tending a dam and one was hit by a wind-toppled RV.
