A tornado quickly moved through Gaylord in the northern Lower Peninsula of Michigan, on Friday afternoon, according to Lt. Jim Gorno of the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.
First responders are assessing the damage caused from the tornado, according to Gorno, who described the scene as being “catastrophic,” with cars flipped over and structures destroyed.
“It is a busy downtown area, and it went right through it,” he said.
“We aren’t used to it up here,” he said. “We don’t have sirens like in other parts of the country.”
