Authorities suspect that it was a tornado that caused substantial damage to farm buildings and power poles in eastern Sangamon County Thursday.
Multiple outbuildings were heavily damaged around Mechanicsburg, Buffalo, Illiopolis and Dawson.
One person reportedly suffered minor injuries, but declined medical treatment.
The storm system that came through the area also produced tornado touchdowns in Christian and Morgan counties.
A number of power poles were snapped east and south of Springfield… and flooding was widespread.
Police reportedly had to rescue a driver whose car became stuck in floodwaters along Route 54 near Riverton.
