Michigan gets its first-ever tornado emergency as massive hail batters Southeast

Severe storms tore through parts of the United States again May 8, spawning damaging tornadoes, producing massive hail, and killing two people in Tennessee and one person in North Carolina.

A storm that rumbled across northeastern Tennessee brought high winds that knocked down powerlines and trees. Claiborne County Sheriff Bob Brooks said a man was in a car struck by one of the trees.

On May 8, a tornado emergency – the weather service’s highest alert level – was issued for an area south of Nashville including the towns of Spring Hill, Chapel Hill, and Eagleville.
