PEORIA, Ill. -- A pair of news anchors had to take cover as tornadoes swept through the Midwest on Sunday.

Mid-broadcast, the anchors for WHOI in Peoria, Ill., realized they needed to stop telling people who needed to take shelter -- and take shelter themselves.

The storms killed at least six people and destroyed at least 70 homes in Illinois.

They also caused hundreds of thousands of power outages, including 390,000 in Michigan.

There were reports of wind damage from parts of Missouri to Ohio.
