ROCHELLE, Ill. —  Images of tornadoes from around our state flooded social media — and the WGN newsroom — Thursday night. Some of the worst images come from Rochelle, Ill. We even have some photos of completely destroyed restaurant there.

One person died from the severe weather in Fairdale, Ill., and a tornado wrecked havoc across the town.

Here is some of what we’ve seen so far:
