Several rounds of showers and thunderstorms developed across the region on Saturday, October 14th, ahead of a strong storm system moving across the central Great Plains. Some of these thunderstorms became severe, producing large hail up to half dollar size, wind damage across Warren, Clark, and Scotland counties, heavy rainfall from 1 to 3 inches over eastern Iowa and northwest Illinois, and two tornadoes.

One tornado touched down just east of Gorin, MO completely destroying a farm outbuilding and damaging two other buildings.  The other tornado touched down west of Bowen IL.
