Tornado
(2008-04-09)
(wgvu) - GUNPLAIN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - The National Weather Service
says a small tornado damaged a barn housing some horses and knocked
down trees in southwestern Michigan.
No injuries are reported but Consumers Energy says more than
6,500 customers lost power at some point early today. Most are in
Kent and Muskegon counties.
The weather service says the worst damage occurred in Allegan
County's Gunplain Township and Barry County's Prairieville Township
just north and northeast of Kalamazoo.
Authorities say several horses were trapped inside the damaged
barn for a time before being freed.
The fallen trees knocked down power lines and blocked roads.
A Kent County woman and her twin five-year-old daughters escaped
a house fire started by lightning.
