On February 28, northern Illinois experienced a severe weather outbreak with multiple tornadoes resulting in two deaths in the National Weather Service of Chicago region. Fifty years ago, on April 21, 1967, a tornado outbreak devastated the Oak Lawn and Chicago area resulting in 58 dead. The death count due to severe weather has been decreasing over the years thanks to advancements in technology and the cooperation of trained severe weather spotters.
The National Weather Service in Chicago offers a free severe weather / tornado course to the public. This course provides information on how to safely identify severe weather incidents and how to report them to the weather service. Trained spotters play an essential role in providing advance notice of severe weather to the public.
