Michigan borders some of the largest inland bodies of water and the Great Lakes are capable of producing storms that are the equivalent of tropical storms and hurricanes as was the case in September of 1996.
Look out Michigan and batten down the hatches - at least that's what this radar image makes you think. That's the remnants of Alberto, the first named storm of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season over Indiana and churning for Michigan.
Hurricane Irma, the most powerful Atlantic Ocean hurricane ever measured, has made landfall on the Caribbean islands of Barbuda and Antigua, and passing by just north of Puerto Rico. Following that, if the gargantuan storm continues on its current path, its core would hit the Florida coast by Sunday morning.
