Tornadoes touched down across the Midwest Thursday—with reported twisters in Illinois, Iowa, and Ohio. At least one person has died due to tornado-related injuries.
This following a reported eight tornadoes Wednesday in Oklahoma, Kansas, and Missouri. The tornadoes are part of a severe storm that affected an estimated 95 million people on Thursday.
The glaring headline of the night’s severe weather activity took place in Rochelle, Ill., where a tornado with winds reported at 91 miles per hour destroyed local restaurant Grubsteakers, and trapped 12 people underneath the rubble in the basement. All were safely rescued Thursday evening.
Among the 20 destroyed homes in the rural, northwest town of Rochelle (population: 9,500) and its surrounding Ogle County was the Ogle County Sheriff Brian VanVickle’s.
