The cleanup continues today across southern Michigan after violent thunderstorms two days earlier triggered destructive tornadoes.
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.
Five people were reported injured in Eaton County, where the National Weather Service says the state's strongest tornado in 10 years struck.
Across the area hit by the storms, dozens of homes, barns, businesses and public buildings were damaged.
The weather service confirmed tornado touchdowns in six areas, including a 26-mile-long stretch extending from near Fowlerville in western Livingston County to Fenton in Genesee County and Holly in Oakland County.
