Weather Almanac For 9/18

This Day In Weather History

1886 - Northeast Illinois had a tornado that moved along the Des Plains river that eventually hit the city of Joliet.  20 homes, 10 barns, 2 factories, and a grain elevator were all destroyed.  A bridge was moved intact for two blocks.  20 people were injured.  The roar of the tornado was so loud that it gave residents time to take shelter and therefore no one was killed.

1904 - 4.66" of rain fell on Decatur, the most in one day for September in Decatur.
