GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - Though the thunderstorms that swept through West Michigan on Thursday left most properties undamaged, some areas in and around Greenville did suffer damage.
Allegan, Barry, Calhoun, Cass, Ionia, Kalamazoo, Kent, Montcalm, Muskegon, Ottawa and Van Buren counties were under the Severe Thunderstorm Watch until 9 p.m. Some of those counties were under a Severe Thunderstorm Warning earlier in the evening.
As of 6 a.m. Friday there are 1,119 Consumers Energy customers without electricity due to the storms. Here is the breakdown by county--
Hail and wind gusts to 60 mph were the primary threats along with very heavy rain. Some areas may see 1-3 inches of rain by Friday morning.
During the thunderstorms that swept through West Michigan between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m, heavy rain, high winds and hail were reported.
The Fenwick area, in particular, suffered some damage as a result of the storm, as did Greenville.
The roof of one barn in Fenwick was blown completely off, part of it landing wrapped around trees or in a field across the street.
The wind also took down half a dozen giant trees.
One man who lives nearby was on his motorcycle riding through the storm and was terrified for his life.
"You've seen that movie 'Tornado'? That's what it looked like. Two-by-fours flying from here to about 40 feet away from me," said Roger Davis. "I looked up. The tree was down so I drove through the yard around it. I popped over the hill and another tree went down and I drove around that one and into the garage."
"We've never had damage to this extent," said another resident, Kevin Christensan. "The barn's gone. That one's our temporary one -- that's gone. That shed suffered damage as well. The house is still standing. The pole barn is still standing.
