Strong gusts of wind brought down trees in Fairbury and surrounding areas Sunday evening.
"I know there was a semi blown over on Hwy 8 southwest of Fairbury," Jefferson County Emergency Management Director, John McKee said. "Some structure damages to homes was also reported."
The damage ranged from missing parts of roofs to trees taking electric services from the side of houses.
According to McKee a lot of trees were damaged, both large and small.
"Wind gusts were measured at 65 mph," McKee said. "There could have been areas with a little stronger gusts, but this is the only measured one we have. Straight line winds can do a lot of damage at any speed."
Several people in the area were without power for a period of time.
