VICKSBURG, Mich. (AP) — About 219,000 customers remain without power and a firefighter has been injured after severe storms knocked down trees and power lines across parts of Michigan.

DTE Energy says late Tuesday morning it's restoring power to about 130,000 homes and businesses. Consumers Energy says about 60,000 are without power, down from 70,000 earlier. Indiana Michigan Power had 29,000 Michigan outages.

More than 230,000 outages were reported due to the storm that also spawned heavy rain and caused road flooding.

The Kalamazoo County village of Vicksburg was hard-hit. Calhoun County officials report widespread tree damage. WOOD-TV reports an Emmett Township firefighter was in stable condition after being struck by a falling tree while assisting others.

A tornado warning for part of Calhoun County was issued around 2 a.m. and canceled shortly afterward.
