Overnight storms cause flooding in Northwest Ohio, Southeast Michigan

Overnight storms dumped several inches of rain on roads in Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan, closing them at scattered locations early Thursday. Authorities were warning motorists to slow down and follow detour signs. Between 7 p.m. Wednesday and 7 a.m. Thursday, about 3.5 inches of rain fell at the Toledo Express Airport and just under 5 inches in Adrian and Lenawee County, Brian Wimer, a senior meteorologist with AccuWeather, a private weather-forecasting service in State College, Pa.

LACKLAND AIR FORCE BASE, Texas - With little fanfare, three American hostages rescued from leftist guerillas in Colombia returned safely to the United States, more than five years after their plane went down in rebel-held jungle. The men didn't wave to reporters or bend down to kiss the ground upon their return late Wednesday. They simply boarded waiting helicopters, which took them to a hospital where they were expected to reunite with their families.
