Yesterday was everything that they promised us it would be. Heavy storms moved across the state dropping up to 3 inches of rain n some places and severe wind damage in others. There were multiple tornado and severe storm warnings issued throughout the late afternoon and evening. My area was spared but we did get 1.65″ of rain and a floor advisory was issued last night. I haven’t heard the extent of storm damage yet but I know that the Grand Rapids area was hit quite hard. The cold front has moved through and today will be much cooler as a result.
