It’s been a busy month for the folks at the National Weather Service as they’ve been tracking severe weather patterns happening all across Illinois.
Here in DuPage County we’ve had several flash flood warnings in the past couple of weeks, but luckily, we will start to see that weather pattern shift going into July.
“Our wind flow will be coming more out of Canada, so while we still will have some chances for precipitation, rain and some small chance of some thunderstorms, they will be less significant than what we had in June, less rainfall, less severe weather,” said Matt Friedlein, Meteorologist at The National Weather Service.
During this latest batch of severe weather, the far southern suburbs got hit the hardest, experiencing a tornado that destroyed much of Coal City.
A team from DuPage County’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management responded to a request for assistance by Grundy County and helped in the recovery efforts.
