Donations capped after central Illinois twister

WASHINGTON (AP) — Emergency management officials dealing with the tornado relief effort in central Illinois say donation facilities are full and can't accommodate any more items.

But cleanup efforts are still accepting financial contributions.

The Tazewell County community of Washington was hard-hit by a tornado last week that cut a 46-mile path of destruction through the region. Across the state, forecasters say at least 15 tornadoes hit Illinois, killing six people and damaging or destroying hundreds of homes.

Emergency management officials say volunteers heading to the tornado cleanup efforts should be able to provide their own food, clothing and shelter.
