Many mid-Michigan residents are cleaning up Thursday morning after a huge storm ripped through the area Wednesday.

The storm left behind a path of damage, toppling trees and power lines.

Meteorologist Matt Mosteiko from the National Weather Service confirmed an EF1 tornado touched down just before 6 p.m. near Brant and St. Charles in Saginaw County.

The estimated peak wind values were between 90 and 100 miles per hour.  The National Weather Service says the twister traveled about 5 miles in 13 minutes.

One injury was reported.

The National Weather Service was in the area early Thursday to examine the damage.

The forecast calls for much better conditions for Thursday and into the weekend however. TV5 Meteorologist Catherine Bodak says watch for some locally dense fog Thursday morning.

Thursday afternoon, a few showers and thunderstorms are possible as daytime highs reach the low 80s.

Thursday evening, a cold front will sweep though bringing cooler temperatures and dry weather to the area Friday.
