CHICAGO (AP) – The National Weather Service says two tornadoes touched down in north-central Illinois as the remnants of Tropical Storm Isaac created severe thunderstorms.

Marshall County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Rockie Harber says the first tornado was spotted in a sparsely populated area south of Hopewell near the Illinois River.

A second tornado briefly touched down in western Marshall County. No damage was reported.

By midday Saturday, the storm had dumped up to five inches of rain in parts of the state.
