**Confirmed Tornado Near Sanford, Midland County Sunday Evening**

**Quick forming tornado over in Midland County around Sanford Lake just before 9p.m. Sunday. Video sent in to 9&10/FOX 32 Weather by Alice Kole of Sanford of the tornado plowing through the west side of Sanford Lake. You can see at the end of the video of debris being thrown when the tornado hit the western side of Sanford Lake. I sent this video to the National Weather Service in Detroit and they confirmed it was a tornado* **The tornado formed very quickly. The National Weather Service did not receive any immediate confirmation of damage or the tornado itself, however radar at that time did show some rotation. A severe thunderstorm warning was issued a few minutes later (8:58p.m.) for large hail and damaging winds eastern Midland and Bay Counties** **The NWS will be at the scene today surveying the damage and will have their final report perhaps later today or tomorrow. 9&10 has a crew there today. Full report tonight on 9&10 News** ——- *Mainly dry today, but few showers/t-showers possible U.P./Straits area this afternoon. A few evening showers/t-showers possible in the north (of M-55)* *Tuesday looking dry and very comfortable* *More humidity and another chance for storms Wed-Fri.
