DEXTER, Mich. (AP) -- The National Weather Service says a
slow-moving storm that damaged more than 100 homes in a rural
southeastern Michigan community when a tornado touched down
included at least one other tornado that caused damage.
No serious injuries were reported and crews are expected to
survey the damage Friday following Thursday's storms.
Meteorologist Steven Freitag says Friday that the tornado that
touched down in Dexter, northwest of Ann Arbor, had winds estimated
around 135 mph based on damage. He says its path on the ground in
Washtenaw County was roughly 10 miles.
Based on video and other evidence, Freitag says a weaker tornado
struck Monroe County's Ida Township.
A third possible tornado was reported in northwest Lapeer
County, near Columbiaville. Authorities reported damage in a three
mile area there.
