Dundee Police Chief Asks For Help After Tornado 6-07-2010

The Dundee police chief is asking for help as he and other officials continue to deal with the aftermath of a weekend tornado that wreaked havoc on the village just north of the Ohio boundary.
Chief David Uhl said Monday he appreciated the "tremendous outpouring of support from the community," but more volunteers are needed.

Uhl said hundreds of homes and businesses were damaged or destroyed, but the Monroe County village is "very fortunate that no suffered any major injuries."
Dundee also is without power, and it's not clear when that will be restored.
Officials said volunteers are needed to help with the cleanup. You can call 734-529-3430 to volunteer.
Donations are also being accepted at the American Red Cross and Salvation Army .
Eight tornadoes hit southern Michigan over the weekend, including two in Monroe County that caused extensive damage to buildings and prompted an automatic shutdown at the Fermi 2 nuclear plant.
A tornado also hit two miles south of Battle Creek, uprooting trees, damaging homes and blowing the roof off a church.
WNEM TV5’s Liz Gelardi is in Monroe County and will have live report on cleanup efforts tonight on WNEM TV5. You can also receive instant updates from Liz on Twitter.
