GRAND RAPIDS (WKZO) -- After more field surveys the National Weather Service is now saying there were four tornadoes in Michigan on Sunday afternoon.
The strongest twister, which rated EF-1 on the Enhanced Fujita Scale, touched down at about 3:27 p.m. near a high school in Cassopolis and then lifted off over a nearby golf course. It was only on the ground for 2 minutes.
Meteorologist Mark Sekelsky says the other three twisters in Muskegon, In Ingham and near Gaylord were all F-zeros.
He says if it had been warmer here just prior to the intense low front moving through, they would have been stronger, like the tornadoes that tore up communities in Indiana and Illinois.
He says they had watches or warnings out for three of the four tornadoes in Michigan. It may have been those warnings that prevented any injuries from those storms.
