The National Weather Service is now reporting five tornadoes touched down in Illinois during a storm that dumped heavy rain as it swept across the state.
A weather service damage survey has confirmed modest tornadoes landed late Monday near Earlville, about 80 miles southwest of Chicago, Plainfield in Will County, in rural Kendal County, near Grant Park in Kankakee County and near Morris in Grundy County.
Officials say none of tornadoes were on the ground long. However, there were straight-line winds the weather service estimates reached speeds of 80 to 100 mph.
In western and southern Illinois there is a flood warning along the Mississippi River.
