No fatalities have been reported.

At least 13 tornadoes downed power lines and flipped cars in the hardest hit areas of central IL. That advanced warning gave people critical time to take cover and may have saved lives. Many people volunteering are neighbors who have come out to help friends in need.

Central Illinois endured several tornadoes on Saturday, resulting in fascinating footage of the funnels spinning through the state.

The National Weather Service said that 12 tornadoes hit near Peoria, Illinois, on Saturday, causing major damage.

Meteorologists said Sunday a tornado with peak winds of 115 to 125 miles per hour caused severe damage in northwestern Sequoyah County. Massive tree limbs were toppled to the ground, roofs were blown off homes and power crews were scrambling to restore service to over 2,000 customers. And in Arkansas, at least three tornadoes that largely caused property and structural damage were confirmed in the northwest and southwest parts of the state. No injuries have been reported.

The severe weather in IL was part of a line of thunderstorms that raked areas of the central United States late Friday and into Saturday, killing one person in Missouri.

Taylorville Fire Department Chief Mike Crews said at a press conference no one was killed, and he couldn't comment on the number of injured.

Residents in central IL on Sunday assessed damage after rare December tornadoes that ripped roofs off homes, downed power lines and injured at least 20 people the day before.

One of the towns hardest hit was Taylorville, about 25 miles southeast of Springfield.

Over 100 homes and businesses were damaged by tornadoes that touched down in Taylorville, according to Christian County Emergency Management.

At least three people are being treated for major injuries at Memorial Hospital in Springfield and 18 more suffered minor injuries, Rauner said. Majority were discharged within hours of their arrival.

No deaths have been reported.

"It was one of those storms that just blew up", Christian County sheriff Bruce Kettelkamp told reporters on Saturday.
