Storms packing high winds swept through northern Michigan on Aug. 2, damaging homes and public facilities.
State emergency officials say they are working to remove dozens of propane tanks floating in the Muskegon River as part of flood-recovery efforts in western Michigan.
The governor’s order allows drivers to exceed the number of hours and consecutive days they can transport propane in Michigan due to a temporary shortage of propane.
