NOTE: We've guessed that you're not using a client that supports colored tables and have tried to compensate. Low graphics mode looks much better on clients that do... we recommend switching to Netscape 3.0 or Microsoft Internet Explorer.

8:00pm CDT (4/19/96) - ILX radar reflectivities indicated the presence of two hook echoes over Piatt county. The southern most hook was probably associated with a tornado that ripped through Bement, Illinois. Further to the north, the second hook echo was likely associated with the Monticello tornado.
