2 Tornadoes ConfirmedSeptember 1st, 2014 at 9:59 pm by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
Two tornadoes have been confirmed in Northern Lower Michigan Monday afternoon. One in far northeast Kalkaska County (9 miles northeast of Kalkaska), rated an EF-1 with maximum winds around 100 mph, and another just to the southwest of Johannesburg in Otsego County, also rated an EF-1 with maximum winds of 110 mph. More details will be coming soon. These would be similar to the early July Sunday evening tornado that hit the south G.R. metro area. No injuries were reported that I can tell. Three people were trapped in their home by fallen trees for a short time. A considerable number of trees were toppled and power was out in the areas affected.
