Clean-up, restoration work follows statewide winter storm

GAYLORD, Mich. (AP) -

Clean-up and restoration efforts are underway across Michigan following a storm that brought high winds, freezing rain and snow.

Officials say state offices will reopen Tuesday after Gov. Rick Snyder ordered them closed Monday. He also activated the Emergency Operations Center, which coordinates response and recovery efforts.

The storm caused power outages and numerous flight delays and cancellations. Parts of western and northern Michigan still were recovering Monday from thunderstorms and wind gusts last week that knocked out power to thousands of homes and businesses.

Meanwhile, winter storm warnings issued by the National Weather Service for the northern Lower Peninsula and Upper Peninsula were set to expire Tuesday morning. Meteorologist Jeff Zoltowski of the National Weather Service's Gaylord office says nearly 9 inches of snow fell in the area.
