I'm in Chicago, so I had to deal with the local news cast on this for the past two days.

It's spring in the mid west. What can I say?

Hey, I was near one of em. I work for HWODVN. We caught up on the one in Clinton County, and I don't seem to be able to find a thread on this. So therefore I guess it's bliss.

Now, Shugo, let's talk.

An F-0??? Call me when you get a positive reading.

And why didn't you list this in the Tornados 2004 thread?

www.abovetopsecret.com...

P.S. IF I UPGRADE THIS TO A NEWS ARTICLE I WILL HAVE TO CHANGE THE TITLE TO READ "TORNADO PEE-PEES ON IOWA"...DO YOU REALLY WANT THAT?

lol... no... I'm talking more about the amounts of tornadoes there were... and the fact that there were F-2's in the Clinton County area. That and I didn't think it'd go there because of how current it was.

I'm looking at the F-2 Val... not specifically the F-0. That and the fact there were 52 tornadoes yesterday total. Granted that isn't the most ever... recalling to May 10 with 70 to 80+ some tornadoes. But, any amount of 10 is a lot.
