Check out this video from storm chaser Andrew Pritchard of the large tornadoes that tore through Northern Illinois yesterday afternoon/evening! Andrew intercepted three wedges, with one attaining nearly 1 mile in width... He said that when one tornado was roping out, a new tornado would form with the new circulation in a matter of seconds. Thankfully, no fatalities have been reported from yesterday's tornadoes, which is a miracle considering the population density...

We're about to head out to Northwest OK in the next hour, but I doubt we'll see anything like Andrew saw yesterday.
