Pre-Dawn Tornado Devastated Harrisburg Illinois- Six Dead

The powerful low pressure and frontal system that produced blizzard conditions and heavy snows in the American Northern Plains- brought deadly tornadoes to the Central States.

As reported here at CSW throughout this Leap Year February tornado outbreak- tornadoes devastated  parts of Kansas as well as southwestern through eastern Missouri after sunset late Tuesday into the darkness of pre-dawn Wednesday morning.

However no one locale was hit as hard as Harrisburg- a southern Illinois city of slightly more than 9000 people- when an EF-4 tornado roared through minutes before 5 a.m. Wednesday morning.

Six people were killed- with at least 100 injured.
