Severe Weather Update – IL, IA, MO


The worst severe weather outbreak so far in 2015 was Thursday, when a preliminary total of sixteen tornadoes touched down in Illinois, Iowa, and Missouri. Many of the tornado reports came from a single long-lived supercell in northern Illinois, about 80 miles northwest of Chicago, that spawned a large wedge-shaped tornado around 7 pm local time. Significant damage was reported near the town of Rochelle, and every structure in the tiny town of Fairdale was reportedly damaged or destroyed. At least one person was killed in Fairdale, and seven were injured. Click here for source.

Preliminary report from the nearest PCA churches is that they are all safe and there is no need for outside assistance yet but there may be soon so please stay tuned.
