DETROIT (AP) - Hundreds of Michigan schools are closed as the state digs out from nearly a foot of snow that fell over the weekend.

In southeastern Michigan, schools are closed Monday in Detroit and surrounding Wayne County as well as counties including Macomb, Oakland, Washtenaw and Monroe. And schools are shut in St. Clair and Lapeer counties.

The National Weather Service reports more than 11 inches fell in Mount Clemens, Ann Arbor and Oakland County’s White Lake Township. Flint got more than 10 inches.

Authorities say a 70-year-old from Wayne County’s Canton Township and a 55-year-old from the Oakland County community of Rochester Hills died Saturday of suspected heart attacks after clearing snow.

In Clinton County on Sunday, a teenage passenger died after his car slid into the path of a pickup.
