The death toll of 36 across five states has six individuals in Illinois, where an Amazon building was struck; four in Tennessee; two in Arkansas, where a nursing house was ruined; and two in Missouri.

The most prolonged tornado on record, in March 1925, followed for about 355 kilometres through Missouri, Illinois and Indiana.
