An early fall storm system raked the eastern half of the U.S. this week with all manner of severe weather.  What was to start out to be big tornado outbreak in North Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas only managed a few hail reports until nightfall and it got on over in to Arkansas and Missouri. Storm Chasers flocked to Oklahoma and Kansas in the anticipation of the event (myself included) and ended up mostly frustrated at the barely severe, fast moving storms that were difficult to keep up with.

Tornadoes were reported from Michigan to Florida and all points in between.

In Nappaee, Indiana, hundreds of buildings were damaged as a tornado ripped through there and a state of emergency has been declared.

All totaled during the Wednesday/Thursday event, there were 66 tornadoes reported, 483 reports of severe wind, and 126 reports of severe hail. From the information I can find, there 6 fatalities during this storm system from tornadoes.  Given the expanse and scope of this event, that is quite remarkable.

Much colder weather is in store now for much of the country as fall finally gets settled in here at the end of October, just in time for Halloween!
