Confirmed tornado, downed trees, hail, and hundreds of power outages after latest severe weather

By Friday morning, the subtle hum of generators was the dominating sound throughout Monroe County after severe weather did a number of some southern Michigan communities.

Thursday evening's storm brought torrential downpours in Wayne County, golf-ball sized hail in Livingston County, and a tornado touchdown in Monroe County.

It also knocked out power for hundreds living along Lake Erie whose neighborhoods were covered in debris.

"We're all relaxing in the house, the storm started rolling through and all of a sudden the wind just blew up out of nowhere," said Joe Sonores. "Went to look out the window and heard a loud crack, saw tree limbs coming through the window."

Sonores was one of several homeowners to find damage to his home. The vehicles parked at his house also were hit.

"After it finally passed, we came outside, tree was down, took out the truck, took out the Jeep, punched a couple holes in the roof," he said.
