Massive Storm Hits The Midwest

Posted By on October 26, 2010

A powerful, 2,200-mile-wide wind storm plowed across the middle of the country Tuesday, spawning tornadoes and brutal wind gusts stretching from the front range of the Rocky Mountains to the eastern Great Lakes.

“It’s a huge storm, and it’s dominating the wind pattern and the weather over a big chunk of North America,” said WGN-TV meteorologist Tom Skilling in Chicago. “And we’re not done with this storm yet.   The wind is going to blow for another couple days.”

The center of the storm is over northern Minnesota, barometric pressure readings hit an all-time low for that state – 28.40 inches. “The barometric pressures underscore that this storm is really in the top tier in terms of intensity,” Skilling said.
