Man what a mess.
A storm SLAMMED into Springfield, IL
and there are reports that a building collapsed and a group of people are trapped inside. Lots of wind, hail, and tornado damage was reported from a supercell that originated in Missouri and tracked across the Mississippi river right accross Central Illinois just north of here in Champaign, IL
. I will say it was the largest storm I've ever seen. Reports were that there was hail over 2" large and numerous tornados were reported with it.
Now there's another supercell with hail reports over 2" about to cross the border into the state.
This is the most recent radar image, the storm in the lower left is the one I'm keeping an eye on, probably some time in the night it will pass through Champaign county, hopefully not right through here. This kind of severe weather outbreak is the worst because its smack in the middle of the night when everybody is in bed.
