After further review, brief tornado did touch down in Earlville

After studying pictures and seeing the damage up close, the National Weather Service is now saying it was a tornado that hit Earlville.

The weather service says the tornado touched down in Earlville at just after 9 Monday night and lasted for a mile and a half. It was 50 yards wide and had maximum winds of 110 miles per hour. It didn’t cause any injuries.

The assessment team says besides the tornado, there were also straight-line winds of 80 to 100 miles per hour in and around Earlville.

The weather service says a small and brief tornado also hit near Plainfield Monday night. They blame heavy damage in Morris on straight-line winds.
