Thunderstorms developed rapidly in west central Illinois from about Monmouth to northwest of Peoria during the late afternoon of July 10th. The storms interacted with a front which was draped from northwest to southeast nearly parallel with I-74. One storm produced a tornado in northern Peoria County around 5:45 pm. Other thunderstorms rapidly clustered together and sank southward, producing large hail and damaging winds gusts in parts of central Illinois between 6:30 pm and 11:00 pm. 

Hardest hit areas included locations from southwest of Peoria - near Hanna City - toward northern Fulton County, down to Lincoln and much of Logan County.
