DeKalb County hasn't seen the last of today's severe weather, according to Gilbert Sebenste, staff meteorologist at Northern Illinois University.
Sebenste said the next wave of storms could come through the county around 7:30 p.m. with some of them capable of producing more tornadoes, hail and up to 80 mph winds.
There is also another wave of severe storms from Dubuque, Iowa heading southeast toward DeKalb County, he said. These storms are projected to hit around 9 p.m., he said.
"[There is] at least one and maybe two more rounds of storms before things finally come to an end," he said.
The first line of storms ripped through southern parts of the DeKalb county, including Shabbona and Somonauk, around 4:30 p.m. The National Weather Service confirmed that a tornado touched the ground around 5 p.m.
But the county is not in the clear just yet.
"Once we get past midnight, the skies will clear and it will turn less warmer and less humid," he said.
