There is a slim chance there was a tornado there, but highly unlikely. If you believe so contact the emergency management. Most of the damage i witnessed from just north of Tremont to Just north of Morton was obvious straight line winds.

I am no weather expert, But i do know alot about the weather. Today the WCM(Chris Miller) Concluded there was one tornado, In Mclean County. I was sitting off of Allentown, seen the wall of dust pushed by these storms as well.

Well BEN... here in Pekin we have a dozen full size trees that have been uprooted. Trees that have smashed 2 trucks just in the subdivision I LIVE IN! Im no weather expert like yourself, obviously, but I do believe we experienced a tornado today!

Soon after i witnessed what is called a "Gustnado" just Northeast of Tremont Between Augustin and Allentown. The dirt that was blowing, had a ground centered rotation, for 30 seconds or so, but there was no rotation above it in the sky hense thename

Most likely not a tornado, there were several reports of dust/dirt being pushed/blown by the 60-80mph winds that rolled through. There was brief mentions of rotation that i heard, Near the Pepsi plant in Morton.
