Within minutes a second tornado formed near where the original Flint-Beecher Tornado left the ground.
That tornado reached F4 wind speeds and continued east through rural farm lands in Lapeer and St.
The tornado’s path also came close to the North Flint Drive-in theater. Some got into vehicle crashes in the ensuing panic to flee while others inadvertently drove into the path of the tornado after leaving the theater. After leaving Beecher the tornado took an east-northeast path following just south of the Flint River where it ravaged farms causing more casualties and destruction near the rural communities of Genesee, Richfield Center and Columbiaville.
Witnesses recalled that the tornado’s massive funnel resembled black smoke and was accompanied by smaller multiple vortices.
Beecher High School was heavily damaged as it was also directly hit by the tornado.
The tornado was one of eight tornadoes that touched down the same day in eastern lower Michigan and northwest Ohio.
It was also part of the larger Flint–Worcester tornado outbreak of severe weather that began over Nebraska and Iowa, before moving east across the upper Great Lakes states and Ontario, and on to New York and New England causing more deadly tornadoes.
