(NBC News) A deadly storm system which ripped through the Midwest on Sunday included the two most powerful November tornadoes that far north for more than 100 years, an expert said Tuesday.
One of the two EF4 tornadoes recorded on Sunday devastated large parts of Washington, Illinois, a town of 16,000 people some 140 miles from Chicago.
The storms left at least eight people dead.
