MURPHYSBORO, IL (KFVS) -

Storms from last night have left some damage in areas of southern Illinois.

According to the National Weather Service in Paducah, there were tree limbs reported down in on the southwest side Murphysboro, with some limbs landing on cars.

Carbondale authorities reported a tree down on South Oakland Ave. that fell against a home.

"My wife and I were on the porch kind of looking at the storm," said Jason Thomas of Carbondale. "We noticed that the winds were going across each other. And then there was big hollow cracking sound. I saw that tree start to move and we ran into the house and ran into the basement."

Also, winds caused tree limbs to fall on some power lines in Murphysboro causing power outages.

Authorities say on the corner of 22nd and Clay Streets there was a power line down Sunday morning. The street was blocked off while crews repaired the line.

There was also tree limbs down on Roblee Ave. in Murphysboro.

Heavy rains also reportedly caused some localized flooding in southern Illinois. Reportedly around 4 inches fell overnight in Carbondale.
