 Brief Description: EVENT NARRATIVE: A NWS storm survey team determined that an EF-3 (Enhanced-Fujita Tornado Scale Rating) tornado with wind speeds estimated at 140 mph produced the most severe damage along a path from M-50 just north of Kinsel Highway to just west of M-100 and Vermontville Highway near Potterville, Michigan. The storm survey indicated a tornado path which was 200 to 300 yards wide and 6.5 miles long. Fifteen homes were either destroyed or severely damaged. A roof was blown off a single story home and windward facing walls were blown in. The majority of the roof and garage from this home were not found. A roof was blown off of a two story home and the upper story front walls were blown in. Additional damage included the partial collapse of the upper story of a home, and another house was blown off of the foundation. Two barns were destroyed and another incurred heavy damage just west of Potterville. EPISODE NARRATIVE: An EF-3 tornado struck Eaton county and resulted in five injuries but no fatalities. An EF-1 tornado struck Ingham county but did not produce any injuries or fatalities.

 Brief Description: A brick, ranch style home in Fairplain Township was totally destroyed by an apparent tornado. No one actually saw a tornado, but the debris pattern and localization of the damage strongly suggested a tornado rather than straight-line thunderstorm winds. Seven people were in the home at the time, but no one was injured. A small shed was also torn up. The path length and width were estimated from the debris pattern. Trees up to 10 inches in diameter were broken off at the ground in a counter-clockwise pattern.

EPISODE NARRATIVE: A late season severe weather outbreak occurred on October 18th. An EF-2 tornado struck Ingham county, resulting in millions of dollars worth of damage and two fatalities. About a hundred structures were damaged in a subdivision on the south side of Williamston in Ingham county. The two fatalities occurred about four miles northeast of Williamston, where a modular home was flipped into a pond by the tornado. There were also a tremendous amount of reports of wind damage with trees and power lines blown down, as well as several reports of three quarters to one inch diameter hail.

 Brief Description: EVENT NARRATIVE: Several trees and large branches were knocked down across North 28th Street near the tornado touchdown. The most extensive damage was located approximately two-miles northwest of Richland south of E C Avenue. The roof was torn off a ranch-style house and completely destroyed with pieces of truss carried one-half mile. Insulation was found over one-mile away from the tornado damaged home. The back deck of the home was destroyed with a large piece of the deck thrown approximately 100 yards. All trees were snapped or uprooted around the house with two uprooted trees carried 30-40 feet. Nearly 1.8 miles northwest of Richland, about 50% of trees were snapped or uprooted with numerous branches down along the tree line. EPISODE NARRATIVE: Thunderstorms developed and moved across Lake Michigan during the evening hours on June 19th. Several hours of intense rainfall occurred starting around 7:00 PM EST. The ground was already saturated from early morning thunderstorms that produced very heavy rainfall. In addition to the heavy rain, severe thunderstorms and tornadoes accompanied the thunderstorms.

 Brief Description: EVENT NARRATIVE: This tornado first touched down approximately 4 miles northeast of Fowlerville at 1630EST between Owosso and Fleming Roads approximately three-fourths of a mile north of Chase Lake Road in Cohoctah Township, Livingston County. Tornado damage was observed from the ground continuously for 14 miles in Livingston County through Cohoctah Township, Deerfield Township and northwest Tyrone Township where the tornado entered Genesee County and the City of Fenton. The tornado damaged 71 homes/buildings and leveled hundreds of trees in Livingston County. Eight homes were destroyed in Cohoctah and Deerfield Townships. The damage along the path was predominately consistent with EF1 scale damage (associated with approximately 100 MPH winds). However, there were 2 sections in Livingston County consistent with EF2 scale damage (and associated with approximately 130 mph winds). The first section of EF2 damage occurred along Schrepfer Road in Cohoctah Township, where a single family dwelling was destroyed. The second section of EF2 damage occurred near the intersection of Center and Mack Roads in Deerfield Township, where substantial structural and tree damage was observed. A third and final section of EF2 damage occurred in Genesee County through the City of Fenton. The average path width in Livingston County was 200 yards. The tornado exited Livingston County across Bennett Lake Road approximately a half mile west of U.S. 23 at 1649EST. It then continued for 4 miles across southeastern Genesee County and for another 5.5 miles in western Oakland County. EPISODE NARRATIVE: Four tornadoes moved through portions of Southeast Michigan on August 24th, leading to an estimated $25M in total damages. One long-track tornado cut a path of EF0 to EF2 damage across Livingston, Geneseee, and Oakland Counties. Fenton was the hardest hit area, prompting the Governor of Michigan to declare a state of emergency there. Tornadoes also touched down in eastern Shiawassee County (rated as EF0), northwestern Washtenaw County (rated as EF0), and southwestern Lapeer County (rated as EF1). Thousands of trees were lost to the tornadoes. Although hundreds of homes and buildings were damaged, many destroyed, remarkably only one person was injured (minor cuts from flying glass) and there were no direct fatalities. One man died (indirect) of a heart attack during the cleanup process in Fenton. In addition to the tornadoes, there were widespread reports of severe thunderstorm wind gusts producing downed trees, limbs, and power lines. The hardest hit areas with respect to severe thunderstorm winds included areas around Flint, Lapeer, St. Clair, Chelsea, Monroe, and many locations in Livingston, Oakland, Macomb, Wayne and Lenawee Counties.
