Michigan tornado March 16, 2012

“Three reported tornadoes tore through southeastern Michigan Thursday, destroying 13 homes and leaving 105 houses significantly damaged, while downing power lines, sparking fires and flooding streets in Dexter, Mich.

Sheriff’s spokesman Derrick Jackson said there were no reports of serious injuries or fatalities.

A tornado touchdown was reported in Dexter and the surrounding area northwest of Ann Arbor, Michigan Thursday night, according to Marc Breckenridge, director of Emergency Management for Washtenaw County. The National Weather Service said a “significant” tornado touched down in Washtenaw County at about 5:15 p.m., and there were over 200 reports of severe weather Thursday from Tennessee through Michigan.

“The temperatures dropped, the clouds were crazy colors and we could hear the wind as it got closer and got bigger. It sounded like a train coming. It started hailing, and the wind was so loud as it got closer, it was extremely scary,” said Dexter resident Matthew Altruda, who was golfing with his friends when the storm hit.”
