    Thousands still without power as heat advisory, more storms on the way

    More strong storms are expected Wednesday evening after a storm front pushed across southeast Michigan Tuesday night, bringing high winds, downpours and thousands of power outages.

    It’s a hot, stormy pattern expected to last several days, the National Weather Service said.

    A flood warning until early Thursday was in effect for the Huron River near Hamburg in Livingston County. The river was around 6.8 feet at 9:15 p.m. Tuesday; flood stage is 6.5 feet, according to the weather service.

    The storms are also brought another round of outages. Consumers Energy reported more than 36,000 customers still without power Wednesday morning, down from a high of 70,000. 

    There were large clusters near Mount Pleasant, Midland and Saginaw. Crews were assessing the damage and positioning line workers for restoration once the storm system ends, the utility said in a statement.
