The first tornado to move into the National Weather Service Chicago’s area of responsibility was the tornado that first struck Magnolia, IL in southeast Putnam County. From Magnolia the tornado continued to move nearly due eastward into extreme southwest LaSalle county where the National Weather Service damage survey team found intermittent EF-0 damage extending to just east of E 1st Rd about a half mile south of Illinois Route 18. The damage consisted of primarily tree and minor structural damage.

 The following information is for the portion of the damage from the tornado in LaSalle county.  The untimate final rating of this complete tornado will be based on results of the survey of the damage in Putnam county conducted by the National Weather Service in Davenport, IA.
