See The Damage From Three Tornadoes That Hit Genesee County [PHOTOS]

Nick Maini

Look closely at this photo. I might just look like a dark, cloudy sky. But look closer… yes, that is a tornado vortex. It’s just one of the twisters that hit Genesee County last night.

Just after 7pm last night, the sirens started blaring in Shiawassee County, and shortly after that Genesee and Lapeer Counties were in the cross hairs as well. At one point, there were two active tornadoes in Genesee County.

One twister did damage in the Beecher area, where a resident found three garages in his back yard. The other tornado did some damage in Fenton Township along Thompson Road between Jennings and Fairbanks. The affected section of Thompson was still closed when this was published.

That second tornado continued east and touched down again in the Goodrich area, leveling a house on Hegal Road and doing some other damage near the High School. Goodrich Schools are closed today due to power outages.

I took the photos in the gallery below from Fenton Township, Atlas Township/Goodrich, and Beecher, the three areas with the most damage in Genesee County.

Here is video of the tornado making its way through the Byron Area in Shiawassee County.

The storms that caused all the damage started in the Kalamazoo area, and here is coverage of the storms that peaked in intensity as it came through our area from WOOD-TV.
