After numerous tornadoes and wind reports across the Midwest yesterday the number of severe storms reports stands at 178 (19 tornadoes, 14 hail, and 145 wind). A wind report out of Lafayette, IN measured 100 mph!
Numerous tornadoes occurred in northern Illinois. One of which my chase partner and I intercepted as it briefly touched down near New Bedford, IL. The photo credit goes to my chase partner Beth Carpenter.
Severe weather chances will continue across the Ohio Valley and into the Virginia’s this afternoon and evening. However, over the next couple days the severe threat will shift back to the northern Plains.
