SPC Storm Reports from August 19

SPC Storm Reports from August 19

Yesterday’s severe weather resulted in 18 tornado reports (not 18 separate tornadoes) in IL, IA, MN, and WI.  Luckily, it doesn’t appear any of the tornadoes resulted in death or injuries and the structural damage seems minimal.  Here are some articles relating to yesterday’s severe weather:

Tornadoes Reported Along the Minn.-Wis. Border

Tornadoes Touch Down in Fayette County [IA]

Tornado Scares Springfield, Touches Down in Loami and Williamsville [IL – includes Twitter updates from local residents]

Today’s severe weather chances shift eastward into OH, PA, and upstate NY. High winds should be the main threat today.  Once the severe weather threat passes, temperatures should cool off by 10-15 degrees in the Great Lakes region.

      Wow! I’m glad you’re OK! Smart idea taking refuge in the gas station. Thank goodness you had stopped. That would’ve been scary to drive through.
