Wouldn't that area be the Mid East or are those two words now bad words in the American Vocabulary? I would think that Midwest would be in the west half of the country.
The main risk for widespread damaging winds, large hail, and a couple of tornadoes are expected in the red/orange shading across Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, and far eastern Iowa into parts of Ohio and Tennessee. Multiple rounds of storms will generally move southeastward across the region through tonight.
Widespread damaging winds, some hurricane force
A few intense tornadoes
Scattered large hail, some baseball size
Multiple rounds of severe thunderstorms capable of damaging
winds, tornadoes and large hail are likely today and tonight
across much of the Midwest, but especially across portions of
Illinois, Indiana, and Kentucky.

When looking at the radar that area since this morning, I've been seeing a line of heavy thunderstorms moving from North to South which seems out of the norm for me. Usually, those kinds of storms move from West to East.

Damaging Winds; Large Hail & Tornadoes; Likely Today in the Midwest
Good Morning, ATS.
I thought I'd post this real quick - considering the potential for an extremely dangerous weather scenario, that is currently unfolding in the Midwest...
- and it's always good to be prepared, and to stay informed!
Jul 13, 2015 - Day 1 Convective Outlook
MULTIPLE ROUNDS OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS CAPABLE OF DAMAGING WINDS... TORNADOES AND LARGE HAIL ARE LIKELY TODAY AND TONIGHT ACROSS MUCH OF THE MIDWEST... BUT ESPECIALLY ACROSS PORTIONS OF ILLINOIS... INDIANA... KENTUCKY AND SOUTHWEST OHIO.
This is a developing situation - so any updates and/or changes to the forecast will be made accordingly.
Tornadoes, Derechoes Possible Monday; Serious Severe Weather Outbreak Likely (FORECAST)www.weather.com...
Broiling heat, extreme humidity fueled by a maturing corn crop, and an unusually strong jet stream by July standards will all combine to bring a potentially major severe weather outbreak, including tornadoes and swaths of widespread wind damage, across a large part of the Midwest, Ohio Valley and Mid-South on Monday. Additional severe weather will spread south and east Tuesday into areas usually well into the summer doldrums by now.
