Stormy Nights

Storms last night brought plenty of thunder. lightning, rain, hail, high winds, and fear of tornadoes as funnels were sighted on Alpine Church Road and on Alpine and Six Mile Rd. Both of those areas were struck by tornadoes in 1965 thus raising fears of "deja vous" amongst those who experienced that tornado. It is not likely that a tornado actually touched down in Alpine Township. Most damage reported was minor. One mobile home resident was reported to have suffered minor injuries as she fell trying to find refuge at Fire Station I.

Corn crops were damaged by high winds
A barn under construction on Kenowa Ave lost all the trusses that had been installed the previous day.
