Michigan Storm Brings Hail, 50 MPH Winds and Power Outages
Power outages for thousands due to southeast Michigan storm today. Beware of hail and high winds reaching 50 mph. Storms may also cause basement flooding in Monroe, Michigan and surrounding areas as well as property and water damage from hail.
The wrath of the southeast Michigan storm will likely center on Monroe and Lenawee counties with hail to a half inch in diameter and wind gusts up to 45 MPH. The storm has the potential to cause flooded basements, flooded property, and water damage due to loss of shingles causing roof damage. To avoid potential property damage and injury, it may be wise to secure outdoor outbuildings with chains and cables and store things like patio furniture, trampolines and basketball hoops to keep them from becoming airborne.
An approaching cold front is to blame for continued showers early this afternoon gradually clearing with a high near 78 and breezy. Rain forecast calls for 50-70% precipitation throughout the holiday weekend.
