Thunderstorms with strong winds have brought down at least one silo and many trees in Milledgeville, Illinois. A MABAS Disaster Box was activated after the storm hit in Carroll County in northwest Illinois.

There was a tornado warning south of Milledgeville in Deer Grove, Illinois, which is about 23 miles south-southeast of Milledgeville, and south of Interstate 88. The National Weather Service will be investigating whether the high winds were caused by a tornado or a microburst.
