...ON THIS DATE IN WEATHER HISTORY...

In 1950, 2 strong tornadoes struck extreme West-Central
Illinois just east of St.  Louis.  An F3 twister had a
path 22 miles long, averaged around 200 yards wide,
killed 2, injured 25 and caused around $550,000 damage.
One hour earlier, an F2 twister cut a narrow path 50
yards wide but was 18 miles long.  However, it, too,
proved deadly, killing one and injuring 3 near the end
its path.
