Michigan doesn't get many strong tornadoes, but we get our fair share. The worst one in Michigan history, an F-5, occurred just north of Flint on June 8, 1953. 116 people died and 844 people were injured in that tornado.

Apparently there are three main "tornado alleys" in Michigan. The largest goes from Grand Rapids to Lansing and then on to the Flint/Saginaw area.
