The National Weather Service said that 12 tornadoes hit near Peoria, Illinois, on Saturday, causing major damage.

The National Weather Service reportedly deployed teams on Sunday to assess the damage and measure the strength of the twisters.

He said that number may grow because crews continue surveying three other sites to determine if storm damage there was also caused by tornadoes.

Illinois' previous December tornado record was 21 storms during an outbreak on Dec. 18-19, 1957. But at least 12 tornadoes were reported in IL on Saturday, including one in Taylorville which has been confirmed.

The weather service sent crews Sunday to survey the hardest-hit areas in IL, which included Taylorville, 25 miles (40 kilometres) southeast of Springfield. That year, 25 tornados tore through Southern Illinois and parts of Missouri, killing 17 people and injuring 273 more.
