Saturday we had The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. Up top is the good. This awesome rainbow pic. comes from Charlie Rozema in Hudsonville. Hudsonville received 0.79″ of rain between 5 and 6 pm…and a total of 2.08″ if you combine the rain from Friday and Saturday. (a little bonus alliteration in the title there).
This is the bad…a tornado that did some damage just outside of Port Austin – very close to where an EF-3 tornado struck less than a month ago on June 26th. I haven’t heard of any injuries with this tornado, but there was some building damage. The National Weather Service has confirmed tornado touchdowns in Macomb, Genesee and Oakland Counties. There are still thousands without power from the storms in SE Michigan, especially Oakland County.
And this is The Ugly…a wicked looking “tail cloud” over Kalamazoo. We were watching it on radar – it was not rotating and if it’s not rotating…it’s not dangerous.
The NWS will conduct storm surveys to determine if damage was from tornadoes or thunderstorm winds.
Rainfall Saturday morning: Suttons Bay 4.18″, Traverse City Airport 2.79″ in 2 hours – 3.36″ total, Mancelona 2.62″.
