Video shows extensive damage to Port Austin after tornado sweeps through Michigan's thumb

Video from a town at the tip of Michigan's thumb showed extensive damage after a tornado ripped through a community this weekend, shredding trees and destroying houses.

At least five tornados touched down in Michigan Saturday, including multiple in Huron County on the state's east side.  A clip from Port Austin, which sits on the Lake Huron coastline, showed several homes with structural damage. 

According to the National Weather Service, the twister that hit Port Austin had a 7-mile path with winds up to 120 mph Saturday.

NWS said the tornado struck around 5:49 p.m., shearing branches off trees and sending debris into homes. 

Weather officials announced a tornado watch for parts of Michigan Saturday after heavy storms deluged the state Friday night and into the morning.
