The most destructive part of the storm blew through around 10:30 Tuesday night and within an hour it was over. But that was plenty of time to knock out power for close to 10,000 in the Lansing area and also cause thousands of dollars worth of damage for homeowners.
Delhi Township was on the places hit hard and residents spent most of Wednesday picking up after the damaging wind and rain. A tree fell on Jim Blockingdon's home; he says he has water and roof damage as well as one bedroom completely destroyed because of the storm. Mike Leonard had three pine trees ripped out of his backyard.
Utility companies will continue to work throughout the evening to restore power. Consumers Energy says all of its customers should have power by 11:00 p.m. while the Lansing Board of Water and Light says its customers should be fully restored by midnight.
