Storm rolls through Tecumseh area
Severe winds reaching speeds of 70 mph swept across Michigan Sunday and early Monday, April 13-14, leaving 450,000 homes and businesses without power statewide. Tecumseh, however was spared with no loss of power, though some areas lost phone service, according to Tecumseh Department of Public Works (DPW) Superintendent Tim Bock. Crews from the DPW repaired the right-of-way in front of a home on Center Drive (pictured) where a tree fell near a home just far enough to ding the eaves trough. In other reports of damage: a tree fell on a car at a residence near the intersection of Park and Willow streets; a tree fell in the backyard of a home on Maple Street; and major tree limbs fell, including one at the Lenawee County Ambulance garage on Kilbuck Street, where a Frontier phone line was snapped.
