Clean up continues week after tornado outbreak in the Illinois Valley

Posted by wlpo on June 29, 2016

It was a week ago when several tornados touched down across the Illinois Valley, and recovery efforts are progressing quickly.

LaSalle County EMA Director Connie Brooks says no requests have been made for any state or federal assistance after the storms. She says some homes were impacted, but the damage has not been serious enough to need outside help.

Rather than looking for help from the government, Brooks says many people have turned to “bringing in their own people” to help pick up.
