Kirksville, Missouri Tornado

It was a stormy day across much of the Midwest on Wednesday. Locally, the big story was the heavy rain that fell, but further west across Missouri several tornadoes touched down causing widespread damage and fatalities.
I measured 2.32" of rain beginning Wednesday morning here at home, but Bloomington had over 6 inches of rain in the same time period. Flooding was a major issue during the morning commute. I even saw on the news this morning an SUV being carried away by flood waters in Little Fall Creek. It was funny to watch. As the car rolled over, you could see the windshield wipers still moving. Today has been calm, but more storms are on their way for Friday night and Saturday.
