The National Weather Service has confirmed two tornadoes touched down in the KWQC-TV6 viewing area Wednesday, June 12, 2013. The worst of the two, was on the ground from 6:53 to 7:03 p.m. in Carroll County. The half mile wide twister traveled six miles from north of Savanna to four miles west of Mount Carroll.

According to the NWS, the storm is rated as an EF-2 on the Fujita scale. That means it had winds of up to 135 miles per hour. The NWS surveyed the damage Thursday morning to reach that conclusion. The tornado knocked down trees, several farm out-buildings, and blew a rural Savanna home off its foundation. The homeowner was injured and taken to the hospital. His condition is not known.

Another tornado was confirmed in Jo Daviess County with a touch down in a wooded area three miles south of Hanover, Illinois. It struck around 6:50 p.m. The NWS estimates it had winds up to 65 miles per hour and gave it a ranking of an EF-0.
