The full extent of the damage to the business has not yet been assessed, but Dort Highway remains closed in that area and is expected to remain closed between Grand Blanc Rd. and the Point in Grand Blanc through a good portion of the day Wednesday.

National Weather Service Will Assess Damage

This rare February tornado is one of two reported tornados that touched down in Michigan overnight.

Authorities in Calhoun County say a tornado was on the ground near Marshall, Michigan, touching down at approximately 12:37 am.

Crews from the National Weather Service are expected to arrive in Michigan to assess the damage to these areas and to issue conclusive proof or tornadic activity.

No Injuries or Deaths Reported

As of Wednesday morning, no serious injuries or deaths have been reported from either tornado.

First responders from the Grand Blanc City Police and the Grand Blanc Fire Department evacuated several residents overnight while crews from Consumers Energy made repairs to gas lines that were damaged in the storm. Residents were allowed to return home after repairs were made.

Gail Fox is a Grand Blanc resident who was evacuated during the storm. She is one of many residents who expressed her gratitude to first responders who were on the scene.

"As one of the residents who had to be evacuated, I would like to express my sincere appreciation and gratitude to the Grand Blanc Police Department and the Grand Blanc Fire Department for their fast and efficient response in getting us to safety."

The video from WDIV-TV shows the extensive damage sustained by Alro Steel overnight.

A Nostalgic Look Back Inside the Infamous Auker Mansion of Grand Blanc

The big house with the large gates on Belsay Road in Grand Blanc, Michigan has been as mysterious as the man who built the massive 14,000+ square foot home that resembled more of a palace than a Midwest home. The late builder Eldon Auker was known for his creativity and flamboyance on some levels, his mansion reflected every bit of that. With its 20 foot ceilings, majestic staircase, and a 3000 square foot bedroom, the home was a showplace. Sold in 2020, it's hard to know if changes were made to the once amazing estate, but it's exciting to be able to take a little look back in time to what once was.
