TAYLORVILLE, Ill. (WEEK) — Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Taylorville) spent much of the weekend surveying tornado damage in his hometown.

Hundreds of homes in the small town about a half hour southwest of Springfield were destroyed or heavily damaged by the tornado on Saturday night. Nobody died in the storm, but dozens were left homeless.

Gov. Bruce Rauner also toured Taylorville on Sunday.

Tornadoes wreaked havoc across much of Central Illinois on Saturday, leaving significant damage in Mason, Fulton and McLean counties.

Davis’ 13th Congressional District stretches from Bloomington-Normal to the Illinois suburbs of St. Louis.
