I've got good news and I've got bad news. There is a quiet place in Illinois that was just named the safest city in America. How can that be bad news? Well, something happened there recently that was the opposite of safe.
I'm not predicting that Friday the 13th will be full of unlucky happenings, but you need to know that our part of Missouri and Illinois is in the area of the highest probability of tornadoes according to meteorologists.
One nice thing about Fall arriving in Missouri is we're finally out of tornado season, right? Wrong. As a matter of fact, one internet meteorologist is warning that Missouri could see strong tornadoes in October and maybe even November based on current weather patterns.
The old saying says "When it rains, it pours". That is sadly even more true for a small Missouri town that was slammed by a deadly tornado in April and is now under flood waters brought about by 8 inches of rain.
At any time in Illinois, you might see any number of things cruising down your street. Vehicles obviously, the occasional dog walker, exercise freaks...oh and tornadoes. That's what one family saw zooming down their street recently.
