Grand Rapids, MI – Michigan is bracing for severe thunderstorms today, bringing the threat of damaging winds and heavy downpours. The National Weather Service (NWS) in Grand Rapids issued an 11 a.m. update, highlighting that the threat area has expanded slightly westward. The primary concern now extends along and east of a line from Alma to Kalamazoo.

According to the NWS, the main hazards include damaging winds that could lead to power outages and property damage, along with torrential rain that may cause localized flooding. The storms are expected to be most intense between noon and 8 p.m., posing a significant risk to the affected regions.

The NWS warns residents to secure loose outdoor items and stay indoors during the storm’s peak hours. Additionally, they advise motorists to exercise caution on the roads, as visibility may be reduced, and hydroplaning is possible on waterlogged streets.

Forecasters predict that the storm system will move eastward by mid-evening, potentially impacting other areas as it progresses. The NWS continues to monitor the situation closely and urges the public to stay informed through their local weather updates.
