CHANNAHON, Ill. (Associated Press) -

Debris from weekend storms that hammered Illinois is being found miles away.

A northern Illinois man says he discovered mail belonging to Washington residents on his property in Channahon, about 80 miles northeast of the tornado-ravaged community.

Scott Slocum tells The (Peoria) Journal-Star that he and his son also found a portion of a birth certificate with a Washington address.

He says the discovery "blew me away."

Sunday's storms killed at least six people and injured dozens of others across Illinois.

The Tazewell County community of Washington and its 16,000 residents were particularly hard hit by the storms.
