WGIL Newsroom 178

Strong to severe thunderstorms moved through the region once again yesterday, but much like the first round, they didn’t provide many problems, if any, in Galesburg.

The National Weather Service doesn’t have any storm reports for the immediate area, but storm spotters did tell forecasters that roughly one-and-a-third inches of rain fell in town in just three hours yesterday evening.
