HOLLY TOWNSHIP, Mich. – A tornado touched down in the Fenton area overnight and left a trail of damage as it traveled to Holly Township.

Officials with the National Weather Service said the EF-0 tornado touched down at 11:33 p.m. Monday (July 11) in the Fenton area, damaged trees on Pine Street near Lake Fenton, and then traveled to Addis Road in Holly Township. That’s where it lifted off the ground at 11:42 p.m., officials said.

Tree limbs fell on a home in the Pine Street area, damaging a second-story dormer and part of the roof, according to the NWS.

The peak damage was reported in the backyard of a home on Addis Road, where about 12 trees were significantly damaged, officials said. Some vinyl siding panels and a pergola were damaged at the home.

A barn down the road lost part of its metal roof, NWS officials reported.

Further damage along the path was “sparse and sporadic,” officials said.
