Tornado Hits Racine!
A strong October storm ripped through the area this morning bringing an F-2 tornado to the southwest side of Racine. (I live on the the north side) From what I heard, the tornado came and went very quickly. Without warning, the twister ripped the roof off the Holland Case factory on Highway 11, leveled a barn off its foundations and downed trees and power lines. Many motorists were trapped in their vehicles because of the power lines.
Only minor injuries were reported.
I was at work when this happened....
I did not take these pictures. Got them off of my local newspaper. I was too tired from work to be chasing around taking pics.
More on the story in the The Journal Times.
