Looks like an F4
There’s a series of tornado warnings along the front line, up and down the length of Indiana and into the western tip of Kentucky right now (3:45 PM EST). The front line is moving east, rather quickly, so this should be across Indiana and into Ohio before sundown.
Just awful. Prayers.
Here’s a twitter feed from a gal who is on the scene, posting pics as she can:
Prayers for all affected by this storm.
It looks as bad as typhoon ravaged Tacloban and Ormoc, but it is Illinois. 9 days to go.
Tornado rips through Illinois, Raises property value.
Lowers crime rate. Well it would if it hit Chitcago.
I haven't heard from my uncle who lives in Washington, and I've been told multiple others I know may have been hit, too.
It's a sad day for Central Illinois.
Brookport, IL, on the Southern end of the state, was hit hard too. 3 dead, many injured, many homeless now. The ER’s at the local (Metropolis, IL) hospital plus 2 pretty good sized hospitals over in Paducah were swamped, Sunday afternoon.
Churches are a BIG part of the relief effort.
