Crews are making progress restoring power to tens of thousands of Michigan homes and businesses left without electrical service following severe storms.

CMS Energy Corp.'s Consumers Energy Unit says fewer than 39,000 of the more than 162,000 of its customers without power since Sunday and early Monday didn't have service around midday Tuesday.

Most should be back late Wednesday. In Leelanau, Grand Traverse and Ogemaw counties, complete restoration is expected Thursday.

DTE Energy Co. says around midday Tuesday it restored power to all but 13,000 of its 95,000 customers who lost service. Most should be back on Tuesday night.

Violent winds uprooted trees, snapped branches and spoiled the landscape in some of the state's most popular tourist spots. At least one tornado was confirmed in Owendale in Huron County.
