Tornadoes Cause Widespread Damage Across Illinois; Large Portion of Washington, Near Peoria, Demolished; At Least Two Dead In So. Illinois


November tornadoes have left a trail of death and destruction from one end of Illinois to the other.

 

Among the hardest hit locations is the town of Washington, near Peoria, where a huge swath of the town was destroyed by a long-track tornado.  Authorities, including National Guard personnel, were conducting a house-to-house search.  Initial reports said at least 15 people were seriously injured, but disruptions to communications made it difficult to get a comprehensive picture of damage and injuries.  Significant damage was also reported in nearby Pekin and East Peoria.

 

Two people are reported dead in Southern Illinois from tornadoes that swept through that region of the state.  And the threat of tornadoes forced the evacuation of Soldier Field and a two-hour weather delay in the Bears-Ravens game.  In the Springfield area, the strong storms and high winds resulted mostly in downed tree limbs.
