      Thousands in the dark due to storm

      Thousands of Upper Peninsula residents are without power Friday morning. Heavy snow has caused power lines in many regions to snap.

      Nearly 1,700 customers remain without power as of 9:30 a.m. Friday.

      Crews are out making repairs. However, as of 2:00 a.m. Friday, no word on when service will be restored.
