September 25, 2012 (CHICAGO)

Video was shot east of Okawville, Illinois, which is about 35 miles east of Saint Louis, Missouri. The tornado was moving east at about 30 miles an hour. As it traveled, it knocked a tractor-trailer over on eastbound 64 near Highway 177.

At about the same time trees started coming down around the home of a 92-year-old homeowner and her daughter. A limb pierced their garage roof as they took cover in a closet.

A second tornado was spotted near Damiansville.

There were no reports of injuries from either tornado.
