Tornado near CadillacJuly 19th, 2010 at 8:00 pm by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
<–wall cloud (note the lowering of the cloud base) and possible tornado looking south across Lake Mitchell (picture one). In the second picture, it’s hard to tell because the house is obscuring the base of the cloud and you can’t see rotation on a still image (however, if I’m the photographer of picture 2 – I’m not hanging around to find out). Thunderstorms Sunday evening produced one tornado just south of Cadillac and wind damage on the north side of Houghton Lake. Winds there were estimated at 65 mph and one injury occurred due to a falling tree. The pictures are from the National Weather Service at Gaylord (some pictures were from TV9 & 10 in Cadillac). The NWS does a fine of job of doing the damage surveys and getting prompt summaries on their websites (often with pictures and radar images). This is a lot of extra work and I appreciate their efforts.
