Stormy, stormy night
Last night was a busy night for Meterologists in Michigan. WOOD TV (Grand Rapids) Meterologist, Bill Steffen writes:
"Consumers Energy (and that's just one company) had over 203,000 customers without power (most due to lightning), and +290,000 statewide. There were DOZENS of fires started by lightning including one that destroyed 2 buildings in Wayland (Baker Equipment Design). Numerous trees were toppled by winds as high as 70 mph. There were injuries in Dorr and also up in the Hart/Silver Lake area in Oceana County as people were hit by falling tree branches. Hail was reported in dozens of towns, the biggest being golfball-sized hail in Coopersville."
