Storms rocked Shiawassee County with lots of lighting and long rumbles of thunder on Thursday evening, but things spun out of control in one area.  The National Weather Service confirms an EF-0 tornado touched down just outside New Lothrop at 9:23pm.  While the twister was on the weak side, according to NWS, the storm damaged and destroyed several buildings and trees and knocked down power lines.  There were no injuries.
