Thunderstorm from Today

We had 2 storms move through Sterling IL on 6/23/15. The second one spawned a tornado east of town they say, but not many signs of a tornado path other than high wind damage spread throught the area. A tornado did touch down and did damage about 15 miles southeast of sterling. I think there is a lot of wishful thinking about a tornado in Sterling area. If there even was one it was weak, short lived and no path to speak of. I saw a tornado just west of sterling 2 years ago and got photos, but that too was minor and looked more like a dust cloud. Now the rochelle tornado I was caught in, now that was a real tornado.
