DETROIT (AP) - Heavy rain that accompanied severe storms in Michigan has caused freeway flooding in the Detroit area.

Storms that moved through the state Monday and early Tuesday included tornados, heavy rain and intense lightning. WWJ-AM reports portions of Interstate 94 in Detroit, along with ramps from I-75 to I-94, had flooding Tuesday morning that delayed motorists.

Flood warnings are in effect for some rivers in the southern Lower Peninsula. The National Weather Service issued advisories for the Looking Glass River in Clinton County, saying homes along the river outside of Lansing could be affected by high water.

Flood warnings also included portions of Allegan, Barry, Calhoun, Eaton, Ingham, Jackson and Van Buren counties. Several inches of rain fell overnight.
