ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - A fresh wave of severe thunderstorms has moved across Michigan, knocking out power to at least 65,500 homes and businesses and bringing heavy rains that caused road flooding.

DTE Energy Co. says at least 40,000 of its customers lost power, while CMS Energy Corp. reports about 22,000 blackouts and Lansing Board of Water & Light about 3,500. Most are expected to have power back by sometime Thursday.

Wednesday’s storms knocked down trees and power lines and flooded roads. The National Weather service reports an 81 mile-per-hour wind gust at Adrian and says 1.71 inches of water fell in Washtenaw County near Ann Arbor in one 4-hour span.

They came a day after a funnel cloud briefly touched down in Iosco County in the northern Lower Peninsula, damaging buildings and vehicles.
