Tuesday was a day most residents of Central Illinois will never forget as tornadoes ravaged several towns.

Tornadoes took two lives in Illinois on Tuesday, as deadly storms passed through north central Illinois. The Chicago Tribune reports that the tornado registered as EF-3 (136 -165 mph winds) on the Enhanced Fujita scale. The tornado caused substantial damage to the town of Naplate. Also, an EF-1 tornado (86-110 mph winds) struck Oregon, Ill

Video of the damage and the storms has been popping up all over the internet, but none compares to video posted by Greg Belt in Rural LaSalle County.


Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of our neighbors to the south.
