An intense storm churned across Lake Michigan and dropped a torrential amount of rain on West Michigan and lit up the sky with a nearly constant lightning storm last night (June 16, 2016).

A video blogger from Breedsville in rural Van Buren County took video from the storm. While the storm illuminated the sky with consistent lightning, there was very little thunder to accompany the light show.
