More than 100 homes damaged as tornados hit Mich.

• By MIKE HOUSEHOLDER, Associated Press
  Washtenaw County Sheriff's Deputy Ray Yee was the first officer on the scene in one of two hard-hit Michigan subdivisions where a tornado ripped through more than 100 homes, leaving them in splinters before downing trees and power lines, sparking fires and flooding neighborhood roads.

Yee approached one destroyed home Thursday, and saw a hand sticking out of the rubble. He pulled out an elderly man, who was shaken but walked away.

"That's the best part," Yee said. "Every place I went to, I would have thought I would have found somebody laying there — deceased or whatever. But, knock on wood, everybody was OK."
