Several tornadoes moved through central Illinois Saturday night causing major damage.

Here are some pics from Elmwood. Two of those tornadoes touched down in Elmwood within four minutes, creating what witnesses on the scene afterward called a war zone. A 30-foot hole was ripped in the roof of the Palace Theatre there, and a number of other downtown businesses were badly damaged.
