VIEWER DISCRETION ADVISED
Here is a preliminary summary of the Davis Junction to Belvidere tornado on the evening of Friday March 31, 2023.
This EF-1 tornado tracked 27.7 miles across portions of
Ogle, Winnebago, and Boone counties
Resulting in 1 fatality and 40 injuries in Belvidere
Due to the roof collapse at the Apollo Theatre.
It began near Armour rd near Stillman Valley
And it ended near Orth rd and Capron.
- Two Gofundme pages have been setup for 2 of the victims.
- Two rounds of severe thunderstorms occurred on Friday, March 31:
one in the afternoon and another, more intense and widespread round during the evening.
- The first round produced mainly scattered instances of large hail across northern Illinois.
- The second round of storms had a history of producing significant severe damage across the eastern half of Iowa through northern and central Illinois.
- There had been a forecast and communicated severe weather risk beginning on Monday for Friday. This risk was increased to a Level 4 of 5 risk, which happens about once every year to two years in northern Illinois and northwest Indiana.
- A Tornado Watch was issued at 2:30 P.M. through 10 PM for the entire area.
- Severe Thunderstorm and Tornado Warnings were issued as the storms moved across the area.
- A Tornado Warning was issued for Boone County 20 minutes before the Belvidere damage had occurred.
- In northern Illinois and northwest Indiana, this produced areas of significant wind damage and multiple tornadoes.
- There were radar indications that there was debris within rotating storms, so we expect to find some tornado damage.
- There were numerous measured wind gusts of 60 to 75 mph, with radar indications of even higher wind speeds in some of the storms.
- Areas of most extensive structural, tree damage, and potential tornadoes include:
- West/southwest of Baileyville in northwest Ogle County
- Near Amboy and Sublette in Lee County
- In and near West Brooklyn in southeast Lee County
- In and near Mendota in LaSalle County
- In Belvidere in Boone County, where media reported that the fire chief confirmed a fatality and near two dozen injuries
- In northern Boone County near Caledonia/Poplar Grove and towards the Wisconsin state line
- In the Harvard area in McHenry County
- In downtown Batavia just west of the Fox River
- In/around Merrillville in Lake County, IN
- In southern Iroquois County, Illinois into Benton and far southern Jasper Counties in Indiana
As of Saturday, April 1, we have confirmed at least two tornadoes in our area of responsibility. These are:
- West/southwest of Baileyville where several farm structures were destroyed. A tornado debris signature was observed from the Davenport/Quad Cities doppler radar.
- Near Caledonia where a trained spotter reported a tornado illuminated by lightning. A tornado debris signature was observed from the Milwaukee doppler radar.
Information will be updated here regarding any additional tornado tracks pending NWS storm surveys and follow-up work with county Emergency Management Agencies.

The tornado tracked northeast through the village of Davis Junction where it caused generally EF-0 damage with isolated EF-1 damage to a single family home on the north side of town. The tornado continued northeast into southeastern Winnebago County causing generally EF-0 damage to multiple farms as the tornado reached its widest extent of about half a mile. The tornado then continued into Boone County causing damage to farms. As the tornado neared Belvidere, the width decreased to about a quarter of a mile but briefly intensified near the central business district. Peak winds estimated at about 100 mph occurred at the Apollo Theatre where a portion of the roof collapsed, causing 1 fatality and 40 injuries. The tornado continued northeast into rural areas of Boone County causing EF-0 damage until lifting near Orth Road and Capron Road at about 7:49 PM CDT. && EF Scale: The Enhanced Fujita Scale classifies tornadoes into the following categories: EF0...Weak......65 to 85 mph EF1...Weak......86 to 110 mph EF2...Strong....111 to 135 mph EF3...Strong....136 to 165 mph EF4...Violent...166 to 200 mph EF5...Violent...>200 mph NOTE: The information in this statement is preliminary and subject to change pending final review of the event and publication in NWS Storm Data.
After collaboration with local Emergency Management officials and an in-person NWS Damage Survey, an EF-1 tornado impacted Machesney Park yesterday evening.
Information about the path length and width (including a map) will be shared in the coming days.
We are also aware of damage in Rockford and continue to work with local Emergency Management officials on a survey. Additional information about the damage in Rockford will be shared in the next few days.
