(Coverage from 6:30 a.m.) 
Power lines down, trees across roads and in the middle of all that, local 911 emergency lines are down in 13 counties in Michigan.

According to officials in Clinton, Gratiot and Shiawassee Counties, their 9-1-1 lines are down, and you will not be able to use them for emergency purposes.

We spoke with their dispatchers  and they ask people who need to report an emergency to call these numbers:

The situation is even worse just west in Calhoun County with 23,000 customers without power.

In Hillsdale there are slightly more than 3,000.

And smaller pockets of outages have been reported across the rest of mid-Michigan. 

DTE Energy is showing a couple hundred customers without power in Livingston County.

The Lansing Board of Water and Light has everyone back online as of 7:00 a.m..

There are numerous reports of trees down and blocking roads.

Crews are working on Onondaga Road just north of Base Line road in Onondaga Township to clear trees.

Use caution on the roads and report any trees or downed power lines to police.
