Tornado Touches Down in IL

Photos by HRFD Photographer Sheryl Drost


Harlem-Roscoe Firefighters assisted North Park Fire after a tornado roared through their fire district. When it touched down and came across Harlem Rd., it lifted a Rockford School bus with five students on board and desposited the bus in a field on it's side. The students and the bus driver were injured and transported to the hospital by ambulances. I was also told on scene that the car in the picture below was picked up by the tornado and put down further down the road.
