Storms cause damage in Iroquois County

Posted:

The Iroquois County community of Cissna Park suffered noticeable damage from storms late Wednesday night.

The storms, which emergency workers said passed through around 11:30, ripped the roofs off portions of at least one house and several outbuildings or sheds and also removed the roof of a school baseball dugout and deposited the roof down just feet away.

Firefighters responded after the storm knocked a camper trailer onto a large outdoor gas tank, damaging the tank. They said no one was injured in the storm, and utility workers restored power to local homes Thursday morning.
