The weather service said Sunday that a strong tornado that developed from severe thunderstorms Friday night touched down in Van Buren, Arkansas.

Miller said preliminary estimates are that the Taylorville tornado may have been an EF2, which indicates wind speeds as high as 135 miles per hour. She said a tornado mainly went through the countryside, but "I know of one house that had major damage". At least 30 injuries have been reported, but no fatalities.

The National Weather Service confirmed tornadoes in Illinois, Missouri and Oklahoma.

The warning helped residents take cover and may have saved lives.

Hardest hit was the town of Taylorviille, southeast of Springfield, where storm winds wrecked houses, downed power lines, pulled trees up by the roots, and left an unknown number of people injured. According to data from the Tornado History Project, the last time tornadoes were reported in IL in December was in 2015 when six tornados broke out.

It remains unclear how many tornadoes blew through the region, but it won't be as many as 22, Miller said.
