Tornado and Storm damage today

Didn't take many pictures, been bustin it to help everyone clean up. Hit only our county in Central Illinois, I believe. Which consists of 3 or 4 smaller towns from 1000-4500 people. Gas stations signs blown down, no power in town, everything closed, trees blocking streets, power lines laying in roads, roofs blown off houses, flooded streets, just a huge huge mess. State cops are all over and The American Red Cross is here helpin everyone out. Ive been helpin everyone with smaller stuff for free of charge. Large jobs I am collecting money for, AFTER the insurance agents had been there and gave it the O.K.

Like I said, wish I had more pics, maybe tomorrow...Getting another bad one rolling in right now!

First pic - Barn Roof
Second pic - Roof of a Gym
Third - Was posted on facebook, log went through someones house.

Have not heard of anyone being injured.

Nothing was lost that can not be replaced with money!

And yes, there is a Jeep under there in the first picture.

We're all well, pics dont do this storm justice, the town was a disaster. The whole main street square was shut down (population 4500). My House just lost a large limb out back, neighbors lost a tree within a couple feet of my truck! Luckily we got the lightest of it, most of it was about 5 miles over.

I looked at the local news but didn't see anything... thought maybe it was the one that tore thourgh Elmwood a few weeks ago. We had a small one level a morton building and some old farm buildings not 10 miles from my house the same night of the Elmwood one.

Looks like some pretty major damage... glad to hear no one got hurt.
