Thunderstorms Slam Kentwood-Wyoming Area; Rains Deluge West Michigan Locales [Video]

Update (12:35 p.m.): The National Weather Service's Grand Rapids Office has confirmed a tornado struck Kentwood. More details here.

Severe thunderstorms late Sunday night caused considerable damage in southern Kent County and authorities are advising people to stay away from storm-stricken locales, WZZM-13 and the National Weather Service's Grand Rapids office report this morning.

The storms hit the Wyoming and Kentwood area late Sunday night and the National Weather Service is surveying areas to determine if damage was caused by a tornado, a microburst or straight-line winds.

Consumers Energy said this morning that about 20,000 electricity cutomers lost power, with about 9,600 of those in Kent County, including Wyoming and Kentwood. The Jackson-based utility said it could be until late Tuesday before power is fully restored.

The American Red Cross of West Michigan has opened a temporary Kentwood shelter at Kentwood Activities Center, 355 48th St. SE for affected people.

Monday Morning – Or, Why I Should Have Stayed In Bed

The past few days have been interesting ones around the Money Pit (what my boyfriend and I, and our friends, call our house). It all started on Wednesday with "the skunk incident", and has just kind of spiraled downhill since.

Every time we go into the backyard, there's at least one baby skunk hanging out in the yard. And then, this morning, I went to let the dog out and saw THIS on our deck.
