Scary Skies: Supercell produces tornadoes Illinois

BUSHNELL, IL — Nature put on an awesome and potentially dangerous display in the sky over parts of Illinois Tuesday.

A supercell that produced several small tornados swirled ominously over the countryside in the town of Bushnell.

A passerby shot video of the storm cloud as tornado warning sirens blared in the background.

In the video you can see several small tornados drop down out of the cloud and kick up dirt and debris.

Bushnell is located in the western part of the state —about 55 miles southwest of Peoria and has a population of a little more than three thousand people.
