National Weather Service officials confirmed a tornado touched down near East Peoria in central Illinois and was moving northeast about 60 mph. No immediate injuries have been reported. Photos from the area showed devastating damage, however.
“This is a very dangerous situation,” Russell Schneider, director of the National Weather Service’s Storm Prediction Center, told the Associated Press. “Approximately 53 million in 10 states are at significant risk for thunderstorms and tornadoes.”
