Residents in central IL on Sunday assessed damage after rare December tornadoes that ripped roofs off homes, downed power lines and injured at least 20 people the day before.

The National Weather Service has confirmed two tornadoes touched down in eastern Oklahoma and is chasing reports of multiple other tornadoes as part of severe thunderstorms Friday night.

The National Weather Service reportedly deployed teams on Sunday to assess the damage and measure the strength of the twisters. No injuries have been reported.

The storms reportedly caused injury to at least 20 people and significant structural damage.

"This is the biggest December outbreak in IL since 1957", he said.

The warning helped residents take cover and may have saved lives.

The severe weather in IL was part of a line of thunderstorms that raked areas of the central USA late Friday and into Saturday, killing one person in Missouri. Officials say 21 people were hospitalized there, one critically, and crews responded to over a dozen houses that contained trapped people, per ABC News.

Miller said preliminary estimates are that the Taylorville tornado may have been an EF2, which indicates wind speeds as high as 135 miles per hour. Most were discharged within hours.

"It's a miracle no one was killed in the tragedy of these tornadoes", said Gov. Bruce Rauner, who toured the area on Sunday.

Early Saturday morning a third tornado with estimated peak winds of 107 mph travelled about 8.5 miles (13.5 kilometres) through Spring Hill in southwest Arkansas. "Internet service, phone service, the ability to monitor the weather, the ability to track resources and things like that, so that's the type of support that asset will provide", said Buckingham.
