Woodhaven Lakes in Sublette takes direct hit from violent storm

Posted by wlpo on June 23, 2015

At least one person was hospitalized after Woodhaven Lakes in Sublette was hit by what appears to have been a tornado.

Officials from the recreational spot in Lee County say one person with a head injury was taken a hospital while several others were treated at the scene for minor injuries. Emergency crews had to rescue people from at least four trailers at Woodhaven who were trapped due to fallen trees and debris. The heaviest damage is on the south part of the resort property.

Ambulances from across the Illinois Valley including Oglesby, Utica and Peru were called to Woodhaven Lakes Monday evening after a mutual aid call was put out across northern Illinois.

Only emergency responders are being let into the property.
