  • Tornado Updates!

    Unfortunately, it has been a bad season for tornados, and only more to come. Here will be updates for everyone on where the warnings are, along where tornados have hit and have done damage.

    DENNING, Ark., May 25 (UPI) -- The U.S. midsection was on high alert Wednesday for more destructive weather as the death toll mounted from tornadoes that struck the Plains this week.

    More than 130 people have died since Sunday night from twisters that demolished parts of Missouri, Arkansas, Kansas and Oklahoma. predicted parts of Illinois and Indiana were at the highest risk Wednesday with storms extending from Arkansas to northern Mississippi.

    At least one tornado touched down in Sedalia this afternoon, causing heavy damage in some parts of the city.

    The tornado hit after 12:20 p.m., leveling buildings and leaving semi-tractor trailers on their side.

    The only injury initially reported, according to the Sedalia Democrat, was a man hurt when he was hit by a falling tree while trying to head to cover.

    A tornado watch has been put in place in all of Central Indiana — including Madison, Delaware, Hamilton, Hancock and Henry counties — until 7 p.m., according to the National Weather Service.

    The watch means conditions are favorable for the development of severe thunderstorms producing tornadoes in and close to the watch area in the warning period, according to the NWS, reports Reuters.

    The agency has also said there is a moderate risk for severe storms across the area today and tonight with the best chances of that happening during the afternoon and evening hour.

    As much as 2 1/2 inches of rain have fallen in less than three hours in some parts of the Chicago area Wednesday morning as a line of storms moved across the area. There was at least one confirmed report of a tornado Wednesday morning, in Kankakee County.

    South and southwest suburban counties are under a tornado watch and airlines have canceled more than 400 flights Wednesday morning. In addition to the tornado reported Wednesday morning in St. Anne, a town of about 1,200 residents which is approximately 50 miles south of Joliet, the National Weather Service has gotten unconfirmed reports of tornadoes touching down in northwest Indiana.

    According to storm reports from the weather service, the heaviest rains so far Wednesday morning were in Will County, where 2.54 inches of rain fell in Mokena between 7 a.m. and 10 a.m.; and 2.26 inches of rain fell in Peotone between 7 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.

    CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) -- High winds, rain and possible tornadoes have knocked down power lines and damaged at least one home and a number of farm buildings in central Illinois.

    St. Anne Fire Chief John Boomsma says firefighters saw a tornado on the ground near the town southeast of Kankakee that damaged one home. No one was injured.

    The (Springfield) State Journal-Register reported power poles down along Illinois 104 between the town of Auburn and Interstate 55.

              Fortunately, not so many tornado warnings right now. However it's still along way away from being done. Still moving to the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast states now.

              Still updating as I receive updates on warnings!

                The line has weakened some, therefore more severe thunderstorm warnings are being posted, instead of tornado warnings. However some super cells still may produce a tornado. Everyone around the surrounding area, please do not let your guard down, as a tornado can spark anytime.

                I will continue to keep you posted throughout the night as I am on!
