Illinois Governor Pat Quinn has asked President Barack Obama to declare 15 counties major disaster areas after tornadoes and strong storms hit the state November 17th.
Quinn said that officials found the storms damaged more than 2,400 homes.
Of those nearly 800 homes were destroyed.
Counties in that list of a state declaration include Champaign, Vermilion, and Douglas. The storms were responsible for 67 tornadoes throughout the Midwest, 24 of which touched down in Illinois.
Six people were killed and over 180 were injured.
