(WMC-TV) - While most of the severe weather damage has been southwest of Chicago, storm chaser Nick Hellums followed the storm to Illinois.

In Gifford, Illinois, much of the town was destroyed by the storm.

"Luckily, it's all passed here and it's on the way to Indiana," stated Hellums.

According to the 2010 U.S. Census, the city of Gifford has almost 1,000 people and is only about a half-mile.

Hellums got started early Sunday morning to chase the storms. He is now safely returning to Memphis.
