Tens of thousands of customers remain without power early Tuesday morning after severe thunderstorms rolled through Saginaw and Genesee Counties Monday.

The National Weather Service says a wave of severe thunderstorms hit parts of the Lower Peninsula with winds of up to 70 miles an hour, golf-ball-sized hail and a funnel cloud.

There have been no reports of a tornado touchdown.

Damage reports include downed trees and power lines in Saginaw Countyâ??s Thomas and James townships, hail as large as 1.75 inches in the Flint area, damaged siding on homes in Mt. Morris, and several reports of trees and wires down in Midland County.
