Today Tom Skilling verified the weather temperature to be 100°F, for a firecracker hot Independence Day, steaming with a sultry hot summerday on July 4th, 2012.
When the temps rise over 100°F in the Midwest, summer storms and tornadoes are right around the corner in July and August.
One sultry summerday in Lilac Town, I walked to the Villa Park Public Library on Ardmore Avenue and School Street, right by Brust Funeral Home where there used to be a big tree by the threshold. I remembered church chimes were playing afternoon tunes.
The afternoon flew by clouded by menacing overcast skies and steaming hot showers brought by a summer tornado roaming in the western suburbs of DuPage County, in Villa Park-Lombard.
The library intercom announced for everyone to go to the public shelter at the Villa Park Library. From the glass window, I watched inclement showers and torrential summer rains cloud the window pane. A Tornado Warning was advised by the Weather Channel shortwave radio.
Afterwards, we heard the loud clap of thunder and the tree by the church and Brust Funeral Home collapsed to the ground. The very same tree I passed by early in the afternoon, had crashed to the ground hit by lightning, thunder, and a blowing tornado wind in Villa Park, Illinois USA
I was glad that a neighboring librarian gave me a ride back to my Lombard home in District 5, York Township m, DuPage County, Illinois USA.
A lot of the old tall trees in DuPage County collapse stricken by thunderbolts of lightning during tornado season in the western suburbs. Some of the trees lose limbs, branches and trunk to windstorms brought by whirlwinds and eddies in the eye of the storm. Low electrical powerlines catch the fallen trees in mid-air and become compromised in massive ComEd blackouts, power outages, and short-circuits.
Accurate Weather forecasting, tree pruning, and prevention can forestall a community tragedy in the path of tornadoes roaming along Villa Avenue, Washington Boulevard, and Westmore-Meyers Road, in the western suburbs of Lombard and Villa Park, in DuPage County, Illinois USA.
While I have observed the path of whirlwinds and thunderstorms ad a Lombard resident homeowner, I have noticed the cross-roads of Westmore-Meyers Road and Washington Boulevard to be in the path of the tornadoes season.
Heavy rainshowers, including pellets of summer hail, can actually attack drivers, commuters, and Lombard residents in the eye of the thunderstorms and tornadoes roaming in DuPage County, Illinois USA.
Lightning and thunderbolts targeting tall trees cause a lot of damages and losses to suburban resident homeowners. This past Monday, a tree crushed two (2) cars parked next to the stricken wooden tree.
Weather disasters can be prevented with Accurate Weather forecasting, prediction, and scientific technology in order to prevent a community tragedy in DuPage County, Illinois USA.
When the sultry summerdays become hotter than 100°F, get ready for tornadoes season in July and August 2012.
