The National Weather Service has confirmed that a second weak tornado struck Michigan as part of a Midwestern storm that hit the state over the weekend.
Tornado watches were issued Sunday. On Monday, crews surveyed damage and reported a weak tornado touched down in southern Otsego County. The weather service also reported a weak tornado in eastern Muskegon County and southern Newaygo county.
Radio station WGHN reports the weather service says the tornado in Muskegon and Newaygo counties is the first in that part of the state since 2003.
No injuries were reported in the areas where tornadoes were confirmed. Officials say at least two people died in other parts of Michigan.
The storm caused damage scattered throughout Michigan, knocking out power to hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses.
