Violent Storms Target Michigan, Indiana, Ohio

There is a risk of violent thunderstorms into Tuesday evening from the eastern part of Lower Peninsula of Michigan to central Indiana and northern Ohio.

Some of the storms will pack damaging wind gusts, large hail and frequent lightning strikes. A couple of the strongest storms could also produce a tornado.

People from Indianapolis to Fort Wayne, Toledo, Lansing, Detroit, Flint, Saginaw, Cleveland and London, Ontario, should be prepared for rapidly changing weather conditions into the evening. Sporadic power outages and urban flooding are possible with the storms.

Seek shelter in a building and away from windows as the storms approach.

Golf carts and picnic pavilions do not offer adequate safety from lightning.

Do not attempt to drive through flooded roadways.

The same storm system responsible for several tornadoes and dozens of severe weather incidents over northern Kansas and southern Nebraska Monday evening is swinging through the tri-state area of Ohio, Indiana and Michigan Tuesday evening.

The remnants of the severe thunderstorms will push east-southeastward into parts of western Pennsylvania and western New York Tuesday night.

There is a risk of damaging thunderstorms and perhaps a couple of tornadoes Wednesday afternoon over parts of upstate New York and neighboring New England.
