VIDEO: National Weather Service confirms tornado touchdown in St. Clair County

(WWJ) The National Weather Service is confirming a brief tornado in St. Clair County.

The relatively weak twister — caught on cellphone video shared on social media — touched down briefly just before 6:!5 p.m. Thursday, as a line of thunderstorms rolled across southeast Michigan.

The Weather Service said the EF-0 tornado in Grant Township — north of Port Huron — damaged a carport, snapped some pine trees and flattened a cornfield.

The roof and siding on one home suffered some damage, storm spotters said.

The tornado was only on the ground for about half-a-mile.

No injuries were reported.

It's been a busy tornado season in the state.

Back in July, an EF-1 tornado did quite a bit of damage in Armada — one of several on the same day in the region — leading to a state of emergency for a portion of Macomb County.

The latest twister to touchdown in metro Detroit was in Rochester, earlier this month.
