Default Illinois Tornados

Had 20+ tornados rip thru here yesterday afternoon. We were lucky, a string of them went 10 miles west, 5 miles east and 10 miles north of here. Lots of damage but most were over farmland. Golf ball sized hail reported. Many injuries but as far as I know, no fatalities.

Wow! Glad to hear you were personally missed!

It's easy to complain about the weather but then, sure enough, you hear that somebody's got it worse. We never get tornados here, ever.


Isn't this a strange time of year for you to have tornados?

Folks we are in for an amusement park ride when it comes to weather now.
Not so amusing for people that get hurt from it.
All of the scientists can babble all they want but no one really knows what the future has in store.
