Default Illinois Tornados Again

A few hours before I started this thread I was under several tornado warnings. As far as I can tell there was one moving east about 5 to 8 miles (8 to 13 km) north, another moving east a similar distance to the south, and a third moving north about 5 mile (8 km) west. This storm front is moving east, so to all our forum members in central and north Illinois WARNING.

Please see the thread of a very similar name started by Hamlin.

Mate, those tornadoes have got to be terrifying. I have seen several programmes on them and difficult to understand how this beautiful planet can be so cruel. Recently here in OZ we have had a couple of smaller versions of your experiences, and the damage, phenominal.

Hey Brian I do not know if I have properly welcomed you to the forum. If not, Welcome to the friendliest woodworking forum on the web. (I am also a member of the Aussie router forum but seldom visit so there may be an equally friendly forum.)

I have never personally experienced a tornado but several times, more frequently in recent years have seen the damage that can be done, and it is awesomely terrifying. This same storm front moved eastward doing much damage along the way, with especially noted damage in the northeast U.S. As long as we have warm fronts and cold fronts (low and high pressure fronts) colliding, we will have tornados. Yes, it does seem strange that this planet can do so many destructive things. Hurricanes and typhoons (one of which I have lived through, and was terrifying itself) are also consequences of high and low pressure fronts colliding are also increasing in intensity and frequency, although the locations are changing.
