Severe Weather Events – Aug. 9, 2021

Severe weather struck Kane County last night. The National Weather Service confirmed that multiple tornados touched down across northern Illinois on the evening of August 9. An internet search will show a number of photographs and videos of these tornados. Several show heavy damage around Sycamore, here in Kane County.

Kane County ARES activated a SKYWARN net during the late afternoon as watches and warnings were announced by the National Weather Service. A number of trained spotters checked into the net and provided reports and updates as the evening progressed.

Thanks to everyone who participated.
