MIDWEST -- The cleanup continues Monday for thousands of people in the Midwest after violent tornadoes track across the region.

One of the hardest hit areas yesterday was the town of Washington, Illinois.

The tornado there leveled just about everything in its path.

People there say they had very little time to react.

"And so I go outside and I heard this, and it's like a loud train, and I said this isn't right," said one man affected by the tornado. "I grabbed my daughter and ran. I never let her out of the basement, everybody's safe, the rest of it is replaceable," said another.

The National Weather Service is still counting how many tornadoes touched down Sunday night.

At least 6 deaths are being blamed on the storms.
