1:10 AM. Warning for Washtenaw, Wayne and Monroe Co. Measured gust to 59 mph at the Kalamazoo Airport, 60 mph at M66 and Base Line Rd. in Calhoun Co. with 55 mph winds and small hail in Richland. Multiple trees and wires down across N. Kalamazoo County. Trees down near Mattawan. Gust to 48 mph and 1.37″ near Battle Creek. Multiple reports of 40-45 mph winds in E. Van Buren and Kalamazoo Counties…gust to 45 in Marshall. Strong storms from near Detroit to SE Cass County. Another shower in Ionia Co. and t-storms near Flint. These storms will likely move east as the line sinks south…so good chance of a t-storm in areas south of a line from along and south of I-94. Earlier today, Wood-TV had a gust to 51 mph on our roof. Wind damage (trees) reported 4 SE of Hudsonville, in Grandville, Wyoming, Kentwood and Alaska. East G.R. had a gust to 51 mph – that’s on top of the press box at the high school. The GRR airport had a gust to 54 mph. Here’s Storm Pictures sent to WOOD-TV at ReportIt. Here’s U.S. storm reports from Friday, storm reports from SW Michigan, E. Michigan and N. Michigan.
