At least three storm-related deaths were reported in Alabama this weekend.

At least five people in Naperville were taken to the hospital with injuries and more than 100 residences were damaged, along with countless trees, the weather service said. A total of 130 homes were damaged.

Meteorologists will survey the scene Monday to assess the damage and determine the strength of the tornado, as well as to confirm whether a single or multiple tornadoes were responsible. There were no reports of serious injuries in the area, but power lines and trees fell, prompting people to avoid the area.

"I just heard a loud crash and I'm wondering, 'Oh, what are your brothers doing?' When I go to see the sky, I can hear them screaming from the room", he said.
