    Not real close, but one of my teachers had it level her neighbors house in Joliet. She only lost some roofing/siding and windows on that side. Got luck i guess.

    there was one 6 miles from me that hit a school. i was out in the garage puttin the dirtbike back together for the race and my mom said that we had a tornado warning. It ended up taking out the football scoreboard and messing up some other stuff out there. Not really all that bad. Just kind of a touch and go and it was gone.

    Nothing near my house, thank God, but it went through the Kankakee area where I work. We had to shut down the plant and hang out in the "designated area" listening to the scanner/weather radio for a while. There was some damage a few miles away, but it apparently went up and over where we were.
