Dana amoung towns affected by tornadoes

Posted by wlpo on November 17, 2013

La Salle County emergency responders were going door-to-door in Dana accessing tornado damage.  A storm system that produced tornadoes that hit Washington and Pekin also produced a tornado that hit Dana around 11:30am Saturday.

Connie Brooks, director of the La Salle County Emergency Management Agency says six to eight homes were damaged and at least one home was destroyed.  Everyone was accounted for and there weren’t any reports of injuries.  Nearby Rutland appeared to be unaffected.

Brooks says other towns in La Salle County had wind damage but nothing significant.
