A system of storms that created tornadoes and damaging winds to 12 states Sunday has caused delays for travelers leaving the San Diego International Airport.

Officials at Lindbergh Field say there are some delayed departures Monday due to the Midwest storms.

At least six people in Illinois were killed and dozens more injured when dozens of tornadoes were reported Sunday.

The mayor of Washington, Ill., estimates that up to 500 homes in his town were either damaged or destroyed. Mayor Gary Manier says, "Everybody's without power, but some people are without everything."

Washington resident Curt Zehr says his wife and adult son scrambled into their basement when Zehr spotted a funnel cloud. Zehr says moments later, the house was gone, but his family was uninjured.

Forecasters say Illinois was the hardest hit. The National Weather Service say up to 40 tornadoes may have hit the Midwest.
