Storms rolled thru the area last night. The National Weather Service issued a Severe Thunderstorm Warning that included the northern half of Fayette County, along with a large chunk of Montgomery County and Bond County that lasted until 11:30 pm last night. As of this time, there have been no reports of any damage from the storms, that reportedly brought 60 mile per hour wind gusts and large hail to the area.
Meanwhile, It’s going to be a busy day of cleanup for a lot of folks across central and western Illinois. Last night’s storms downed trees and power lines across a broad swath of the middle of the state. The National Weather Service is confirming one tornado in Peoria County. Forecasters hope to have a better handle on the storms and storm damage later today.
