UPDATE: Neighborhoods Leveled
Entire blocks in Washington, Ill., are leveled after tornadoes and other fierce storms ripped through 12 states in the Midwest yesterday.
Washington resident Curt Zehr says his wife and adult son scrambled into their basement when Zehr spotted a funnel cloud.
Zehr says moments later, the house was gone, but his family was uninjured. Forecasters say Illinois was the hardest hit and the National Weather Service say up to 40 tornadoes may have hit the Midwest.
