Saturday's storm wreaked havoc for one Adams County Community.
According to Liberty Fire Chief Don Luth, strong winds caused a lot of damage around 10 this morning, near 2000th Street and Highway 104.
Several power line poles were damaged, and partially uprooted, which knocked out power to about to more than 360 people in Liberty.
Luth told us before the show most was restored by about 8:15.
A machine shed and barn was also destroyed, causing a part of the building to land on a tractor and damage it.
Debris from the structure was blown into trees and nearby fields.
There were also several homes with structural damages, like roof shingles being blown off.
Several trees were also uprooted.
Adams County Emergency Management is spear-heading the efforts and will remain there until they are needed.
A warming shelter for those still without power is located at Liberty Fire Department.
Both organizations continue to check on residents in the area.
The National Weather Service will investigate whether a tornado touched down in Liberty.
In Pike County, Illinois, several large tree limbs and power lines where blown down in Barry.
And three miles north of Perry, down trees limbs blocked the intersection of highway 104 and 107 earlier today.
