Utilities in Michigan are scrambling to restore power knocked out by a gusty weekend storm as rain and melting snow causes flooding there and in other parts of the Midwest.

About 132,000 customers are without electricity in Michigan, down from more than 400,000 yesterday. Some could remain without power until Wednesday.

Nearly 60,000 customers from central New York to Buffalo also lost power yesterday as wind gusts as high as 75 mph brought down trees and utility poles there. About 4,400 New York utility customers are still without power.

There are flood warnings today across the Midwest as temperatures rose after a week of heavy snowfall. Forecasters say flooding is possible in areas of Iowa, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and northwest Ohio.
