  • Description

    Two people were killed and more than one hundred homes and business premises destroyed by a tornado which hit the small town of Canton, Illinois, on Wednesday night (23 July). Weather authorities gave warning of the approaching disaster and many people found shelter before it struck.

    The worst hit area was a mobile home court on the outskirts of the town. One resident said her windows shattered and flying glass swirled around the room. Both victims and a critically injured man came from the court.

    Many shops and business houses in the town were also destroyed. Damage is expected to run into millions of dollars.
