UNLESS YOU LIVE IN LENAWAE OR MONROE COUNTY YOU WONT SEE RAIN TODAY!!!
Below is a breakdown of how much it has rained or stormed in the past month. July 2021 was the hottest Month in the history of the planet earth. Now truthfully 700k Metro Detroiters who may read this cant read it because DTE still has not restored their power.
Tornado in Southwest Michigan-
The Wednesday night storm that swept across the state leaving power outages and flooding in its wake caused a tornado in Dorr Township, the National Weather Service in Grand Rapids confirmed.
The tornado is classified as an EF0, which is the weakest category on the scale and consists of wind speeds between 65 and 85 miles per hour.
More than 800,000 Michiganders lost power over the last two days after severe thunderstorms and strong winds uprooted trees and knocked down powerlines. Some 400,000 residents still remained powerless as of 6:30 a.m. on Friday.
Consumers Energy spokesperson Brian Wheeler said most customers will get their power back by the end of the day on Saturday, and they expect to finish by the end of the day on Sunday.
He said they have over 550 crews working 16-hour shifts to help the 157,000 customers that remain without power.
Most residents should have power restored to their homes by Sunday according to DTE.
NOAA.org- July 2021 was the hottest month ever in the history of the entire world. Not because of Christopher Melonis photoshoot that apparently brought people out of the closet or Brittney Spears Instagram pics. Climate Change may infact be real as now we have evidence in our face that’s more valid than Mike Lindells 72 hour Live Stream.
Daily rainfall records were broken in Detroit (2.73 inches) and Flint (1.32 inches) for August 12th as a result of the heavy rainfall we saw overnight-this morning.
August 11th Storms- https://www.weather.gov/dtx/SevereThunderstorms-August-11-12-2021
Two rounds of thunderstorms impacted Southeastern Michigan on August 11: the first during the afternoon and the second during the late evening into the following morning. The first round produced widespread severe wind gusts across the area between 3 and 5pm as a well-organized line swept eastward across the state. This line knocked out power for hundreds of thousands of customers as widespread tree and power line damage occurred. A wind gust of 75 mph was measured in Mt. Clemens and prompted the issuance of NWS Detroit’s first “Destructive” Severe Thunderstorm Warning. A lull in activity followed for much of the evening before the next round of storms tracked eastward across the region after 10pm. Severe reports were more isolated with this round, but abundant moisture moved in and led to repeated rounds of training thunderstorms that resulted in prolonged heavy rain and flooding overnight. Flash Flood Warnings were issued for Livingston County and the Detroit Metro region where some areas saw 3 to 5 inches of rain. Additional severe storms occurred the early morning of the 12th along and south of the I-94 corridor before storms finally moved out. In all, 9 Severe Thunderstorm Warnings, 2 Flash Flood Warnings, and 3 Special Marine Warnings were issued.
According to DTE and Consumers Energy outage reports, nearly 850,000 customers across the state lost power due to the storms on August 11 as well as a round of storms on the 10th.
AUGUST 9- Scattered storms continue through mid afternoon across SE MI. A few will be strong to locally severe with gusts in excess of 50 mph possible. Heavy rainfall leading to poor drainage flooding also a threat.
Taken from NOAA.org and Weather.gov on August 13th 2021.. In an attempt to find out the last time it didn’t rain or storm in some form in an entire day I gave up after going back 10 days and everything was just rain and storms.
