The National Weather Service confirmed the tornado in Livonia, estimating its peak wind speed at 95 mph and its path at over 5 miles. They attributed the lack of warning to the storm’s rapid formation, known as a “spin-up,” which developed too swiftly to be detected by radar.

Emergency responders worked tirelessly to rescue those affected and cautioned residents about the dangers posed by downed trees and power lines.

As communities in Michigan and Maryland grapple with the aftermath of these devastating tornadoes, the nation mourns the loss of a young life and prays for the swift recovery of those injured in the storms.
