But at least 12 tornadoes were reported in IL on Saturday, including one in Taylorville which has been confirmed. Its path was intermittent and mostly caused damage to trees and to some structures. If the majority are confirmed, that would be the most tornadoes in IL in a December storm since Dec. 18-19, 1957, when there were 21.

It remains unclear how many tornadoes blew through the region, but it won't be as many as 22, Miller said. Extensive home damage occurred here as well as a winery, and uprooted trees and downed power lines. No reports of fatalities have been recorded in IL, although one person has been killed in neighbouring Missouri as a result of the storms.

Although there is significant damage to report, miraculously, no one was killed.

Among the hardest hit areas appears to be Taylorville, a small town that sits about 25 miles South and East of Springfield. Around 30 people were injured, at least 21 were sent to the hospital with few suffering from critical head injuries, but there were no deaths.

It is a very special victory to give our supporters. "I think the team were good up until 2-2, competing very well". When asked whether Ozil had attended the game, he added: "I don't know".

Multiple tornadoes were reported on Saturday night across central IL, injuring at least 30 people in the small town of Taylorville, which has a population of just 11,200 residents.

Assistant Fire Chief Andy Goodall, speaking to reporters Saturday night shortly after the storm pounded the city of 11,000, said at least 100 homes had major damage, including his own, Springfield's State Journal-Register reported. Most were released within hours.

Damage surveys for the two tornadoes are ongoing but officials said dozens of homes were damaged. Several agencies report to the operations center, including the Illinois Emergency Management Agency, Department of Public Health and the American Red Cross.

A full assessment will be completed sometime Monday or Tuesday after the teams have finished tracking the start and end points of the storms, Chris Miller, the warning coordination meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Lincoln, told Fortune.
