After severe weather ravaged Central Illinois Monday evening, Emergency Management Services began to survey the damage once the sun came out. While reports are still going to be a couple days, Regional Radio News has learned from Christian County Emergency Management Director Mike Crews, that there was in fact a tornado touchdown in Christian County.
All in all though Christian County survived a strong storm relatively intact considering the severe weather sirens have been down for maintenance.
The severe weather sirens will be operational next week. The reports are still preliminary. An official report will come out in a few days assessing the path of the tornado.
