Waterspout, funnel clouds spotted at Lake Michigan

WHITEHALL, Mich. (WZZM) -- Temperatures Wednesday morning dipped into the upper 30s and low 40s in West Michigan--the coldest air we've seen since mid-May.

And that cold air moving over the relatively warm waters of Lake Michigan led to reports of waterspouts along the lakeshore.

Spencer sent WZZM a photo of a funnel cloud forming over the lake, spotted from the window of Whitehall High School.

The National Weather Service also reported a waterspout near Lake Macatawa Wednesday morning.

Waterspouts rarely move on land but pose a risk to boaters or anglers on the water.

Muskegon Community College has signed a purchase agreement with The Herald Publishing Co. LLC and the owners of the former Muskegon Chronicle building, 981 Third St., to buy the building and an adjacent parking lot.

The announcement was made during a special meeting of the MCC Board of Trustees on Thursday, Sept. 11.

The identification of a downtown campus is a component of the College’s 2010-15 Facility Master Plan and is one of four projects approved by the voters in the November 2013 election.

“The Board of Trustees has evaluated several locations for the Downtown campus,” said MCC Board of Trustees Chair Donald Crandall. “After much discussion, the Board feels that the Chronicle Building best fits our needs for housing the Applied Technology and Entrepreneurial Studies programs and, at this time, will have the greatest impact on downtown development.”
