SYCAMORE, Ill. (CBS) -- Video from a rural area outside Sycamore showed a tornado blowing debris high through the air as dangerous storms pounded the area late Monday.
The video from freelance photographer Scott Lasker was shot about 3 1/2 miles outside the De Kalb County town.
It was not clear what was blowing, but it appeared to be a structure.
Another photographer captured video of the tornado from a drone, and reported that it lifted trees and farm equipment.
Multiple tornado warnings were issued through much of the area Monday afternoon and evening. Sycamore saw what appeared to be one of the most well-defined tornadoes.
