     Motorists in the Thumb also have been dealing with problems from the heavy rain. Huron Central Dispatch told us there are two roads that have been closed due to water over the road. They are Geiger Road, between Moore and Grassmere Roads, and Hartsell Road between Sebewaing and Canboro Road by the bridge. There are other areas that had water encroaching on the roadway. Motorists should be careful in their travels as ditches, creeks and rivers may still be rising. We have also been told McIntyre Road is washed out and impassible by Barrie Road near Bad Axe, Hartsell Road south of Sebewaing Road has water over the bridge. Canboro Road about a half mile west of Elkton Road is closed as a culvert pipe had washed out. Also Sebewaing road and Caro Road has water encroaching out about 3 feet into the eastbound lane. Caution is advised there, but the road has not been closed. There are also some roads in the Port Hope area where the water is as high as the bottom of the bridges. They will be closed until they can be inspected for safety. In some cases the Huron County Road Commission is working on emergency repairs, so residents and emergency vehicles if needed can get through.
    Heavy rains brought flooding to parts of Michigan, prompting authorities in the Midland area to caution people against unnecessary travel. The Midland County Sheriff's office says water is deep enough Friday morning on some roads that vehicles are getting stuck. The National Weather Service says a flood warning is in effect for the Tittabawassee river after the area got 4 to 7 inches of rain. Flood warnings also were issued in Gladwin, Isabella, Mecosta and Montcalm counties.   High winds and thunderstorms Thursday night and early Friday knocked out power to tens of thousands of homes and businesses. DTE energy reports more than 69,000 customers were affected and power had been restored to at least 22,000 of them. DTE's power outages are concentrated in Monroe, Washtenaw and southern Wayne counties.
