Tornado Confirmed in Boone and McHenry Counties Wednesday

The Chicago National Weather Service traveled to McHenry and Boone counties to survey damage from Wednesday night's thunderstorm.  From the survey they did find damage consistent with an EF-1 tornado from just south of Poplar Grove northeast to Harvard.

Maximum winds were estimated between 90-95 mph with the tornado on the ground for a little over 10 miles.  The tornado went right through the town of Capron producing significant damage to a farmstead.  No injuries or fatalities were reported.
