This page lists all of my tornado intercept days in the Midwest region (outside of the Great Plains) from newest to oldest, with links to each chase report containing more photos, videos and detailed accounts. The "Midwest" chase region is defined as Missouri, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Arkansas and Tennessee. Most of these images are still frames captured from video footage. For a list of all tornadoes including those from the Great Plains, see the main tornado page.
