Storm brings gusty winds, hail

Severe thunderstorm warning this afternoon

A tornado warning in La Salle County has expired, but a severe thunderstorm warning remains until 1:45 p.m.

An early afternoon storm dumped hail and wind gusts up to 50 mph in the county. A tornado warning was issued, concentrating on the northeastern portion of the county.

The storm line extended from Newark to Marseilles. Nickel-size hail was reported in the area, as well as rotation.

According to the National Weather Service, showers and thunderstorms are expected to redevelop by early to mid evening across a portion of Northern Illinois and Northwest
Indiana. This area of thunderstorms will move slowly southeast through the night. These thunderstorms are anticipated to have a scattered severe hail and wind threat. There will also likely be a flooding threat, possibly only over a small area.
