The national weather service is confirming reports of a tornado touching down in Michigan.

Rain, hail, and high winds moved across southeastern parts of the state Thursday.

Six funnel clouds were confirmed in Monroe County, and at least two towns in Washtenaw County were hit by tornadoes. 

Emergency officials are still calculating the damage to homes and businesses, but they said no lives were lost.

Residents said they have never seen a storm of this magnitude.

"We just shut the door and prayed and held hands and stuff and kept calling our husbands and telling them not to come home," one resident said.

A tornado also hit a neighborhood in Ida, Mich. Cleanup in the state is expected to take at least a few weeks.
