A tornado ripped through a rural Michigan community Thursday evening, damaging or demolishing many homes, downing trees and power lines, sparking fires and flooding roads.

A dispatcher with the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Department told Reuters that “there are homes leveled” in Dexter, which is located northwest of Ann Arbor. The Detroit Free Press linked to a YouTube video of a twister.

Sheriff’s spokesman Derrick Jackson told The Associated Press that 105 homes were significantly damaged in Dexter and the surrounding area, and 13 were destroyed.
