Any of you northern Illinois boys come close to the tornado yesterday??
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.
