 Brief Description: A tornado first caused damage along the west side of the town of Caseyville, Illinois along Forest Blvd, just east if Interstate 255. Over twelve witnesses observed the tornado along the leading edge of the bowing squall line as they saw debris tossed several hundred feet into the air. The tornado traveled east southeast along Forest Blvd and West Lincoln Avenue. Three house trailers were severely damaged by the tornado between 85th and Black Lane. Two injuries occurred in two of the three house trailers. Numerous large trees were severed or downed by the tornado. The roof of a large machine shed on Black Lane was uplifted and displaced several hundred yards to the east. The tornado then ripped through an auto salvage area where several vehicles were over-turned, damaged or destroyed. The width of this damage area was 50 to 100 yards wide while damage intensity was rated F1. The tornado continued to travel just a bit south of due east causing damage to two homes and a camper and completely destroying another mobile home. Some of the remains of the mobile home was observed 3/4 mile to the east just west of Highway 157. Pieces of metal were wrapped around snapped power poles while one 2 x 4 board was driven into the front windshield of a pickup truck. The width of this damage area varied from 50 to 75 yards while the damage intensity was rated low-end F2. The tornado continued east and showed a convergence pattern in a nearby wheat field south of West Lincoln Ave. The tornado then caused minor damage to six new homes 100 to 300 yards south of West Lincoln Ave and 1/4 to 1/2 mile west of Highway 159. Roofs from five homes were partially uplifted and tossed 200 to 400 yards downwind to the east. One home under construction was completely destroyed. The width of the damage area varied from 75 to 150 yards. The damage intensity was rated the lower end of F1. The tornado continued east up a ridge just east of Highway 157. Several large trees were snapped or uprooted just east of 157. Additional tree damage was found along Hill Road east of Highway 157. One home on Hill Road sustained minor roof damage. The tornado crossed East O'Fallon Drive and severed or uprooted several large trees. One home sustained minor roof damage while a machine shed and garage was severely damaged. The tornado damage track ended just west of Highway 159. Width of the damage area again varied from 75 to 100 yards while the damage intensity was rated at the lower end of F1.

Several large trees and large limbs were downed by the tornado. The damage width at this location was 60 yards wide while damage intensity was rated F0. The tornado traveled northeast through a small subdivision southwest of Lincoln Trail (US 50) and Cathy Lane.

On the east side of Cathy Lane the roof of an apartment building was damaged while a second establishment sustained side and roof damage. Damage was rated F1 intensity while the damage width ranged from 60 to 80 yards. On the north side of US 50 several large power poles were snapped off. Other establishments along the north side of US 50 sustained various degrees of damage. Light poles and tree damage revealed a convergent damage pattern indicative of a tornado. The tornado then hit the south side of the K & G clothing store. The front center part of the roof collapsed while debris from this area was pushed along the east side of the large store. There was one fatality and 11 injuries at this store. The damage width ranged between 80 to 100 yards in this area while the damage intensity was rated lower end of F2. The tornado continued northeast across St. Clair Square Mall, Interstate 64, and then hit a church on Old Collinsville Road. The tornado damaged the steeple and roof of the church.

Several large trees were also damaged over this area. The damage width was approximately 60 yards wide while damage Intensity was rated F1. The tornado then crossed the intersection of Kyle and Simmons Road and caused only minor roof damage to six homes in a subdivision north of Kyle Road. The tornado continued to travel northeast and caused damage to several homes in the Crown Point subdivision just south of O`Fallon-Troy Road. The roof of one home was completely uplifted and tossed over 100 yards to the northeast. The damage width was 100 yards wide while damage intensity was rated F2. The tornado then crossed O`Fallon-Troy Road and totally destroyed a machine shed at a farm. Debris from the machine shed was tossed over 1/3 mile to the northeast. Two other homes 1/4 mile north of the intersection of Weil and O`Fallon road sustained varying degrees of damage. The roof of one home was uplifted and displaced to the northeast. Several trees in this area were also damaged. The width of the tornadic damage was 100 yards while damage intensity was rated F1. Insulation debris from both homes was tossed over 300 yards across an open field and line of large trees. The total tornadic damage track was approximately 7 miles.

 Brief Description: EVENT NARRATIVE: The tornado crossed into Sangamon County from Morgan County at 151 PM CST, then continued northeastward through the town of Loami before lifting 1.5 miles northwest of Chatham at 208 PM CST. In Loami, 13 homes were destroyed and 19 homes were severely damaged. In addition, the tornado produced damage to several homes, farm machinery sheds, trees, and crops along the remainder of its path. Three people sustained minor injuries from flying or falling debris in Loami. EPISODE NARRATIVE: A vigorous upper-level disturbance in conjunction with a warm front lifting northward through central Illinois triggered strong to severe thunderstorms during the afternoon and evening of August 19th. Embedded supercells within a long line of storms produced enhanced wind damage and tornadoes. Seven tornadoes touched down on August 19th, affecting parts of Scott, Morgan, Sangamon, Logan, DeWitt, McLean, and Vermilion counties. The strongest tornado was rated as an EF3 by an NWS Storm Survey as it tracked across southern Logan County. Total damages to crops and property from the 7 tornadoes were estimated to be more than $25 Million.
