FLINT (WKZO) -- A storm cell that touched off tornado warnings in the Kalamazoo and Lansing area Tuesday night, is now blamed for 6 tornadoes in Shiawasee and Genesee Counties.

National Weather Service meteologist Dave Gurney says they ranged in strength from an EF-Zero to a pair of EF-2 twisters.  They ripped apart a county road maintenance barn and damaged several homes and businesses.

Township fire chief Frederick Forest says one of the twisters left a mile long path of destruction.

Fortunately everyone in the path of the twisters heeded warnings and there were no deaths or injuries.
