Episode Narrative Severe thunderstorms moved into extreme southwestern portions of Southwestern Lower Michigan just prior to midnight on April 5th, resulting in numerous reports of up to golf ball sized hail and winds in excess of 80 mph. The most significant damage occurred across southern Kalamazoo county, especially just west southwest of Schoolcraft.
Event Narrative Trained spotters across the far southeastern portion of Van Buren county reported hail up to one and a quarter inches in diameter and wind damage. Several trees were blown down and the large wind driven hail resulted in siding damage to homes across that area.
