    The National Weather Service (NWS) has updated the number of confirmed tornadoes to have hit Illinois on Saturday, December 1.

    NWS now says 27 tornadoes touched down across Illinois that day.

    The National Weather Service says the earlier count of 30 tornadoes included a few duplicates that needed to be removed from Pike County and one from Morrisonville.

    The new total comes after the NWS added survey results from Sangamon County as well as the addition of tornadoes from Mason, Cass, and Morgan counties.
