An EF-1 tornado with winds estimated at 100 mph touched down in Boone County just before 3:30pm on Thursday. The tornado was part of a small cluster of severe storms that pounded the state between 3 and 6pm.  Heavier rain had fallen earlier in the day and our seasonal total is running well above average. We'll get  a break from rain on Friday but more t-storms are likely this weekend.
