Severe weather in central Illinois triggered the sirens in Taylorville and also brought more heavy rain to the area, flooding some streets.


Christian County EMA Director Mike Crews said during Regional Radio’s live severe weather coverage that a false alert went to some cell phones about a tornado warning in Christian County, but there was still merit for the sirens being blown.



Although no tornadoes, wind or hail was reported with the storms that blew through, one caller told Regional Radio News that parts of North Webster Street in Taylorville had become impassable because of water.
