Hurricanado?

When was the last time we saw something like this? 

I kid, but what isn't funny is this growing possibility:
People in at least seven states from the plains to the Midwest are bracing for dangerous storms that forecasters say could produce hurricane-force winds, very large hail, and a few "intense" tornadoes beginning late Tuesday afternoon.

According to the National Weather Service's Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Okla., the severe weather outbreak is expected to stretch from southern South Dakota through Nebraska, Kansas, southern Iowa, northern Missouri and west-central Illinois.

Forecasters predict damaging winds — 60-80 mph in some places — and large hail will be widespread. "It's called a 'land hurricane,' and one could develop tonight across the Plains," CBS Chicago's Megan Glaros tweeted.
