Multiple Rounds of Severe Weather

A nearly stationary frontal boundary stretched across the ILN forecast area during the first week of June, 2008. With plenty of heat and humidity, there was abundant instability for thunderstorms to repeatedly develop across the region. Roughly speaking, five separate rounds of severe weather affected the area between the afternoon of Tuesday, June 3, and the evening of Wednesday, June 4.

The National Weather Service in Wilmington, Ohio, conducted a number of storm damage surveys on June 5 and June 6. All survey determinations have been finalized, and the survey results (as issued originally in Public Information Statements) have been copied below. The reports are ordered chronologically.

Warnings Issued: Tornado: 22 Severe T-Storm: 40 Flash Flood: 22
