July 19, 2007 - Ann Arbor, MI - Artists and thousands of visitors to the Ann Arbor Arts Fairs had to dash for cover Thursday as emergency sirens wailed, signaling a tornado warning issued by the National Weather Service. Radar indicated that a severe thunderstorm at Whitmore Lake, about 12 miles away, was capable of producing a tornado and possibly headed toward the fair. More than 500,000 people are expected to turn out for the five-day event, which features the work of nearly 1,100 artists and covers about 30 blocks of downtown Ann Arbor on the edge of the Univeristy of Michigan's main campus. The severe weather caused little damage and passed quickly, soon permitting the exhibitors to return to business as usual.
