Episode Narrative Storms developed along an outflow boundary that was laid out along the I-70 corridor. The storms produced wind damage, large hail as well as 9 tornadoes. Two of the tornadoes were rated EF3 as they moved through the St. Louis metro area.
Event Narrative A tornado touched down half a mile north of the intersection of County Road 100E and 2200N or 3.5 miles south-southwest of Waggoner, Illinois. Several large tree limbs 6 to 10 inches in diameter were blown down by the tornado. The tornado path at this location was 30 yards wide. The tornado traveled northeast and damaged one barn and a few outbuildings on Goby Avenue, about 1.5 miles west of I-55. The roof of two outbuildings were uplifted and tossed 100 to 150 yards to the northeast. Another outbuilding was severely damaged on Coalfield Avenue, half a quarter of a mile west of I-55. Damage intensity was rated EF1. Debris from this machine shed was tossed across a corn field and across I-55. The tornado then crossed I-55, blowing over three tractor trailers. No injuries were reported. The tornado then damaged a third farmstead on County Road 2500N approximately a quarter of a mile east of I-55. Windows were blown inward on a two story farm home and two machine sheds were severely damaged. The damage intensity was rated EF1 and damage was 40 yards wide. The tornado continued to move northeast and downed large tree branches 6 to 10 inches in diameter on East Waggoner Road, about 2 miles east southeast of Waggoner, Illinois. The tornado then lifted and dissipated. The tornado path length was 4.3 miles with a max path width of 50 yards. The damage was rated EF1 with max wind speeds estimated between 90 and 100 MPH.
