Episode Narrative A warm front lifted north across southwest Michigan during the afternoon hours. An abundant amount of moisture and strong southwest flow combined to produce thunderstorms across the region. As a result, four tornadoes were spawned from a single thunderstorm.
Event Narrative Tree branches were snapped off when a brief tornado occurred. This tornado was on the ground for less than one minute before lifting.
