National Weather Service damage surveys have confirmed one tornado touched down late Friday night in southern Knox County, IL.
The twister, rated an EF-1 with winds of 110 mph, initially touched down about 4 miles east of Abingdon, or about 3 miles southwest of Delong around 11:50 PM.
The tornado travelled just over 10 miles, damaging mainly trees, farm fields, & one group of outbuildings before lifting one mile west of Rapatee (east of London Mills).
There was also a swath of non-tornadic damage from Abington southeast toward London Mills. This was caused by straight line winds of 70-90 mph.
These are some photos of straight line wind damage east of London Mills by the Fairview area sent to us by storm chaser Kholby Martin.
