Damaging straight line wind downed power poles in several counties. Hail as large as tennis balls fell in some areas as well.

A tornado was reported on the ground by a spotter, on the ground for four minutes, eight miles north of Marquette.

Heavy rain that accompanied the storms caused some flooding issues in some areas.
