The National Weather Service will send investigators to three Southeast Michigan counties to confirm reports of tornadoes Monday night and Tuesday morning. The Sanilac County Sheriff’s Department says a tornado touched down at 10:08 pm Monday at M-53 and Deckerville Road. An amateur radio operator reported a twister near Millington in Tuscola County at 10:22 pm. And a probable tornado damaged a few homes and farming equipment in Manchester just after 1:30 am Tuesday. NWS Meteorologist Joseph Clark tells WDET’s Pat Batcheller the agency had predicted severe weather for Lower Michigan early Monday morning.
