Just now, janetjanet998 said:

yikes now

 

just NE of town though?

On Google maps it looks like the entire city is confined in a very small area with not much around it, if there was anything on the ground (which is very likely) it went just NE of town.

Mesoscale Discussion 1719
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   1000 PM CDT Mon Aug 12 2019

   Areas affected...central and southern Illinois...southern
   Indiana...and into parts of western Kentucky

   Concerning...Tornado Watch 575...

   Valid 130300Z - 130500Z

   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 575 continues.

   SUMMARY...Strong/severe storms have become well-established across
   central Illinois and vicinity.  Damaging winds will likely become
   the primary severe risk, though tornado risk continues across
   central Illinois.

   DISCUSSION...Latest radar loop shows a band of convection in a
   roughly west-to-east band across central Illinois, that continues to
   shows signs of gradual upscale growth.  However, updrafts still
   remain sufficiently separated spatially to reveal pronounced
   supercell characteristics in radar imagery, including a few strongly
   rotating cells.  One such cell -- which appears likely to have been
   producing a tornado over the past half hour -- has now moved into
   northern Shelby County Illinois.

   With time, expect upscale growth to continue, with storms likely
   evolving into an east-southeastward-moving storm complex, where
   damaging winds would likely become the primary severe risk.  This
   could require southeastward watch issuance later this evening.  In
   the mean time, risk for damaging winds and a tornado or two will
   continue in the short term.

These were taken about 8:23 p.m. CST at 37,000 feet. I believe this is what is hitting St. Louis area now.

 

Pilot got on after passing these to say he was dodging next group of developing cells in central Illinois.

 

As we deplaned he commented that he wished he had time to snap a few shots. Unfortunately mine were taken from the aisle seat.

 

A lot of good lightning visible for the guy shooting video in my row.a4ee2897103b8291764dd4d0307b887f.jpg&key=7ee7564e900ef472a2f174be6830e89769bd0eb876054b88670048b8f9731d6c6a9f9910a8b68023599d2e734f8b6038.jpg&key=686ac1a1b35405bbffbb2fe9dea1f851cb945084e6516a2a65cdf390afdc1bab
