Despite word that Vernon Township firefighters confirmed multiple funnel clouds and even a touchdown in the area of Sheridan and Ray (Miller) Roads near Gaines, and municipalities from Perry to Durand activating their storm sirens, no weather agency issued a tornado warning or watch on Tuesday night. In fact, no weather advisory at all was issued as a small storm cell pushed through southern Shiawassee County and into Genesee County.
After reports of funnel clouds by spotters in Perry, Bancroft and Durand, a skywatcher in Clayton Township called in another report of rotation in the sky near Bristol and Seymour Roads, according to a post by Flint Police Operations. On Tuesday's ABC 12 11pm news broadcast, Meteorologist J.R. Kirtek said there were reports of damage in the Durand and Vernon Township areas, but that they were likely caused by straight-line winds.
The Tuesday night weather activity ushers in a Wednesday that is expected to include the potential for severe storms. Consumers Energy crews are preparing for potential outages.

Last year Durand added a second car show that was such a hit they’re bringing it back this year! In addition to their traditional “End of Summer Cruisin’” show (always held Labor Day Saturday), they’re inviting classic car owners to cruise downtown and enjoy an evening of live rock and roll performed by Tommy Vale and The Torpedos. The July 19th car show is free and runs from 5-9pm at East Main and Hagel Streets, right next to that night’s “Wednesday Night Live” free outdoor concert.
