<–2nd picture (one of many) from Steve Geerlings at the Yacht Basin Marina taken around 11:15 AM. 1st picture off of Port Sheldon taken by Margi Smith and Sharon Barkwell. At least one waterspout was reported - we had pictures/emails from both Holland and W. Olive. It’s unstable…we’re getting showers – upper level disturbance helping out with the cold pool aloft. It’s not hard to get small hail in a situation like this. Leave a comment and let us know what’s happened in your area. Here’s more on Great Lakes waterspouts. Here’s a live picture of the lake off Holland showing the Holland Channel looking southwest from Spyglass Condos. Here’s pictures of a large waterspout off Holland on 9/29/06. Here’s a live picture of the Grand Haven Channel and a live picture of the beach at Grand Haven. Here’s GRR looping radar, Northern Indiana radar, Lightning Loop, and the U.S. surface map. Here’s the current visible satellite loop (day), infrared satellite loop (night) and current Michigan surface observations. Side note: At least 26 people have been killed as heavy monsoon rains (6″ just on Saturday) hit Karachi, Pakistan.
