TORNADO TOUCHES DOWN | Naperville, Woodridge Among Communities Hit Hard Sunday Night


DUPAGE COUNTY–Countless area residents are dealing with the aftermath of a powerful tornado that touched down in Woodridge, Naperville and other surrounding areas on Sunday evening. As the streets remain covered with fallen debris, major news networks are on the scene in badly effected area neighborhoods, as they continue to report on the destruction left behind.

The Village of Woodridge reported damage to many area structures and is assisting those affected by the tornado while assessing the damage. As of early Monday morning, there were no reports of significant injuries and as residents take to social media, many are seeing widespread damage. Pictured above is a home in Woodridge that was destroyed Monday night as NBC-Chicago covers the story.
