This video of the Washington, IL EF-4 tornado is remarkable. I believe you can hear air rushing out of the house due to the pressure drop outside.

There seems to be a fall outbreak like this every 5 or 6 years in the midwest/ohio valley. Nov 10th 2002, October 18th 2007, Nov 17th 2013 being the latest.

The Washington tornado will probably be the strongest home state tornado I will witness for many years to come. It was rated only 5mph below EF-5 criteria.

I thought it was at 190 mph.
