SOUTH HAVEN, Mich. (AP) - A deep freeze is settling in across Michigan and authorities say icy road conditions are apparently a factor in at least one traffic death.

The National Weather Service warns of wind chills into Friday of minus 15 to minus 20 in southern Michigan. Temperatures at 8 p.m. Thursday ranged from 18 at South Haven in southwestern lower Michigan to minus 4 on Drummond Island in the eastern Upper Peninsula.

Authorities say a 46-year-old Tekonsha man died in a Calhoun County crash Thursday.

A stretch of Michigan 28 in Alger and Marquette counties reopened Thursday afternoon after a shutdown for snow.

Also Thursday, Michigan ordered CMS Energy Corp. to report on a January natural gas shut-off at a Hazel Park home where a 69-year-old man died of hypothermia and other causes.
