Event Overview

Severe thunderstorms developed across central, southern, and southwestern Lower Michigan during the evening of September 1st, 2018. Four tornadoes have been confirmed as of September 4th, 2018. Most of the damage was confined to trees and associated structural damage due to falling trees. Some of the storms were well-photographed and had a visible structure resembling supercell thunderstorms, including rotating rain-free updraft bases, wall clouds, and brief funnel clouds. Such structures are relatively uncommon in Lower Michigan, especially in the last few years.
