Significant damage occurred in the towns of Kings and Hillcrest according to police sources. The tornado damaged an undetermined number of structures northwest of Ashton. “This was a violent, long-track tornado,” said Ari Sarsalari, a meteorologist for The Weather Channel. Forecasters for The Weather Channel described as the biggest severe weather event so far this spring a monster storm system that has peppered a 1,500-mile arc with grapefruit-size hail and winds up to 80 mph from Texas up to the Great Lakes and across to North Carolina. The danger zone for twisters Wednesday included parts of Kentucky, Texas and Oklahoma in addition to Missouri and Indiana. As many as 30 million people were in the path of this storm. The next rounds of severe storms will likely hit the western shore of Lower Michigan around 11 p.m. and then move east. There is also a chance of isolated tornadoes. A severe thunderstorm watch has been issued for western and central Lower Michigan until 3 a.m. Friday, April 10, 2015.
