Backstop at Southside Park – Backstop at Southside Park

30 homes with major damage on the south side of Streator.  Many others have damage but nothing considered major after a tornado hit the town Saturday night.

Most of the damage was to homes but two businesses, including Danchris Nursery were damaged.  The recently renovated James Street baseball field was also torn up.  The press box and scoreboard have yet to be found.

St. Mary’s Hospital in Streator treated 50 people following the storm, 17 of them were brought in by ambulance.  All of them have been allowed to go home.

Clean up continues and crews with Com Ed are working to restore electricity.
