Episode Narrative Very unstable conditions existed in advance of an approaching cold front during the afternoon of June 27, 2010. Thunderstorms developed over southern Lake Michigan and moved northeast into Van Buren and Kalamazoo Counties. A brief tornado touched down just south of Gobles in Van Buren County just after 1:00 PM EDT.
Event Narrative The tornado touched down briefly just south of 20th Avenue causing damage to one property. A metal outbuilding lost its tin roof. Numerous snapped branches were found at treetop level. No damage to the residence was evident. The tornado then skipped across an open area with little to no damage. The tornado then touched down in a cornfield with evidence in the broken cornstalks. The path then moved into a line of trees. Approximately 20 trees were uprooted or snapped. A new camping trailer was flipped into a house. The tornado then lifted in the backyard of the residence.
