People in Northwest Michigan are still cleaning up the damage from severe storms that caused damage at some of the state's most popular tourist spots.

Hail damaged fruit trees. Nearly 100-mile-an-hour winds damaged homes and other buildings. It caused almost $35 million in damage in Grand Traverse and Leelanau Counties, according to early estimates.

Governor Rick Snyder already declared a state of disaster for Grand Traverse County, supplying state aid to the cleanup efforts. On Friday he extended the designation to Leelanau County as well.
