A Fox 2 viewer captured trees blowing in the high winds and heavy rain. Sunday's storm came quick and it came strong. Viewers also saw arcing and sparking downed power lines, a dangerous situation. In Berkley, a family reported a downed tree limb and caught a charged power line lighting up on camera.

Flooding was also an issue in many areas. Flash floods hit several places including I-696 and I-75. The storm blew through a mobile home park in Troy. Luckily, no serious injuries are reported.

In other areas we saw roof damage. Hail hit the area hard. In western Oakland County hail larger than golf balls fell in Highland near M-59 between Duck Lake Rd. and Harvey Lake Rd. We saw dramatic pictures all along the M-59 corridor into Milford, West Bloomfield, Walled Lake, Novi, Northville and Brownstown.

In Roseville, one viewer sent a photo of people kayaking down the street. Other snap shots show people tubing. This is not recommended because you don't know what may be in the roadway under the water.

When the wild weather settled down, viewers sent us stunning storm cloud shots and photos of double rainbows.
