Michigan utility crews expect power to be restored today to the last of the 427,000 homes and business blacked out by days of thunderstorms.
Consumers Energy says about 4,300 homes and businesses remained without power at 4 a.m. today, while Detroit Edison says about 2,000 customers remain without service.
Friday's storms stretched from west of Lansing to Port Huron and were concentrated in the Potterville area and Detroit's far northern and western suburbs.
The storms produced six confirmed tornado touchdowns Friday that damaged dozens of homes, barns, businesses and public buildings.
Five people were reported injured in Eaton County, where the National Weather Service says the state's strongest tornado in 10 years struck.
