National Weather Service confirms EF1 tornado in Saginaw County

Posted: Updated:
SAGINAW COUNTY (WJRT) - (06/12/14) - The clean up continues after a tornado ripped through Saginaw County, Wednesday evening.

The National Weather service was in Brant Township early Thursday morning, confirming that an EF1 tornado did touch down.

A Brant Township home on Fordney Road is in rough shape. The homeowners are still wrapping their head around it.

It's just one example. There is damage all along Fordney Road to Ring Road.

Ring Road is a heavily wooded area and the trees came crashing down in that tornado. Crews had the road blocked off to clean everything up safely.

One neighbor described it as a war zone, with yards are just torn apart.

A bright spot in the chaos - neighbors are coming out to lend a helping hand. We talked to one man who's helping even though his hand is broken. He says it's just the right thing to do.
