Two tornadoes touched down in Howell early Saturday, uprooting numerous trees, pushing cars into each other and ripping away part of a bank roof, according to the National Weather Service.
Officials confirmed the high winds were caused by a tornado after surveying damage in the area, where they found large trees uprooted and damage to businesses. Some of the most significant destruction was reported where the storm touched down at a shopping center that included a Home Depot store.
“A video posted on social media captured the tornado as it moved southeast through the Home Depot parking lot,” the weather service said. “In the same shopping center, metal roofing from a Chase Bank was torn and later found a half mile away.”
