(CNN) — Severe weather erupted throughout the Midwest on Sunday afternoon, with tornadoes tearing through several cities and a storm forcing fans to evacuate the stands during an NFL game. “We saw trees down, houses with their roofs completely torn off. I saw a lot of people in distress with their homes destroyed,” said Jack Lance, who lives in Pekin, Illinois. “It wasn’t a pretty sight.” At least six people died in Illinois as a result of the severe storms, said Jonathon Monken, director of the Illinois Emergency Management Agency.
