Nothing from ILX yet.
 
KLOT:

A BRIEF TORNADO PICKED UP A CONSTRUCTION TRAILER AT
PITTWOOD ON ROUTE 1. THE TRAILER WAS THROWN INTO A POWER POLE AND SEVERELY DAMAGED. A WORKER WITNESSED THE FUNNEL. THERE WAS NO OTHER DAMAGE IN THE AREA. PRELIMINARY RATING IS F1.

So two confirmed waiting on information from one more (KILX).
 
Also not report related, but since I chased yesterday, I thought I'd pitch in. We were a tad north of Salem approximately 3 pm headed south for that NWS confirmed tornado cell, before we had a slight accident that pushed us back a couple of hours. Report shows 4 pm touchdown. Distance 31 miles. :?

Interesting reports that came inn from SE MO, after nightfall.

I believe we made some calls around the area on Friday and were unable to confirm the tornado in Piatt County.
