OAK PARK, Mich. (AP) - An autopsy is scheduled later this week on a 68-year-old man who died after an apparent heart attack while pushing a car through flood waters north of Detroit.

He’s the third person whose death is linked to a severe storm that dumped more than six inches of rain Monday on some parts of southeastern Michigan.

Two deaths in the Detroit suburb of Warren have been blamed on Monday’s storms. A 100-year-old woman was found Tuesday in her flooded condominium basement and a 30-year-old woman suffered seizures Monday and died after her vehicle became trapped in high water.

Gov. Rick Snyder issued a disaster declaration Wednesday for Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties. The heavy rain flooded basements, streets and stretches of several freeways.
