Tornado touches down in Saginaw

A tornado damaged 20 homes and injured at least one person in Saginaw County Wednesday evening.

The National Weather Service says the EF1 tornado touched down near Brant and Saint Charles right before 6pm. It was packing winds of 90 to 100 miles per hour.

Matt Mosteiko is a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

He said that severe weather can be hard to predict, especially when it’s tied to warm fronts.

“Usually along that warm front it’s really tricky to have to forecast any type of severe weather so lots of times we will mention there will be severe weather possible near that warm front, but there really wasn’t a whole lot of ingredients that were favorable earlier in the day so it was kind of a ‘nowcast’ as far as meteorologically. Soon as we saw that a storm was coming together and getting more organized that’s when we put out that tornado warning.”

The storm was on the ground for 13 minutes, and left a damage path up to 300 yards wide. Mosteiko said there was one minor injury, and that treatment was refused.

He also said the storm had a rotating updraft in it. A rotating updraft is also known as a mesocyclone. That means air rises and starts to rotate around a vertical axis thus forming a tornado.
