At 8:45 a.m., the National Weather Service relayed a report of trees reported down along Highway 286 in Ballard County (about 4 miles south of Kevil).
At 7:20 a.m., the National Weather Service relayed information of a large tree blocking Highway 34 along the Franklin County and Saline County line in the community of West End.

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch continues until 3 p.m. for parts of Southern Illinois, Northwest Tennessee and all of Western Kentucky. The storms are moving quickly, so most likely the watch will be canceled before 3 p.m. for the viewing area.
