LAKE ORION, Mich. (WJBK) - Hail, wind, lightning and rain resulted in damage and downed power lines Saturday in parts of southeast Michigan. Clarkston, Macomb, Chesterfield and New Baltimore are some of the hardest hit areas. In Lake Orion, police were flooded with emergency calls after wires came down on top of cars and buildings. We're told about 40 people were trapped inside Buffalo Wild Wings after power lines fell in the parking lot. Emergency crews were on the scene late Saturday night.
