Classic Hits 103.9 WLPO

News from the Illinois Valley

Weather service reports at least six tornado touch downs Monday evening

Posted by wlpo on June 23, 2015

The National Weather Service is confirming tornado touch downs in or near Sublette, Mendota, Ottawa, Coal City, Braidwood and Herscher.

The tornadoes hit the Illinois Valley between 8 and 10 last night. Damage included multiple trees being knocked down along with power lines. Flooded roads and basements were also a result of overnight storms with some spots getting two to three inches of rain in under an hour.

Surprisingly there were very few hail reports from last night’s storms.
