At least 13 tornadoes downed power lines and flipped cars in the hardest hit areas of central IL.

The tornado was on the ground for around 10 miles (16 kilometres) before it thundered through Taylorville, and the weather service was able to warn residents of its arrival 41 minutes before it actually struck, Chris Miller, a meteorologist at the service's Lincoln office, said Sunday. Around 20 people were injured, but there were no deaths.

Crews also said at a press conference Saturday night that emergency officials responded to about 12 to 15 homes that had people trapped inside.

Illinois' previous December tornado record was 21 storms during an outbreak on Dec. 18-19, 1957.

The National Weather Service sent out survey teams Sunday to analyze the damage, and said the exact number of tornadoes and the amount of damage wouldn't be determined until these are completed. No injuries have been reported.
