CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

National Weather Service meteorologists have conducted a ground survey covering the most heavily damaged locations of north central Illinois. Based on early findings the tornado that tracked from near Rochelle to near Belvidere…and impacted the community of Fairdale…appears to have been a single long track tornado. Preliminary survey assessment indicates this tornado was an EF-4. An aerial survey will be conducted tomorrow — weather permitting — to confirm a final rating.

At least one satellite tornado associated with this larger tornado was found thus far and there may have been others.  An aerial survey will help us ascertain whether there were any additional tornadoes on this day.
