(1) This isn't particularly specific to metafilter, as metafilter is not based anywhere near Mid Michigan.

(2) I haven't heard anything like this today (I live just south of Lansing and work in East Lansing), and can't find any mention on any of the media outlets here in Lansing. I'll watch the six o'clock news, though.

I think if its important, we'll all hear about it. There's no need for people to rush to Mefi to report news.

There was nothing on Lansing news last night.

(Not every radio station in Lansing is known for accurate news reporting, despite the "from the news capital of michigan" moniker that is often popular here).
