Damage Survey Results

Pockets of wind damage occurred across portions of far southern Lower Michigan as well as northwestern Ohio in the vicinity of a warm front that helped with thunderstorm organization. A two mile long swath of straight line wind damage was noted from roughly one half mile northwest of Moscow to 2 miles northeast of Moscow in Hillsdale County, MI. The majority of the damage occurred to groves of trees that were snapped or uprooted. A century old barn was severely damaged after being impacted by the high winds and pushed off its elevated foundation. Maximum wind speeds are estimated to have reached at least 90 mph. Additional evidence was found of a weak tornado within this swath that is noted below.
