Tornado sweeps through suburban Chicago, causing damage
June 22, 2021
CHICAGO - A tornado swept through communities in heavily populated suburban Chicago, damaging more than 100 homes, toppling trees, knocking out power and causing multiple injuries, officials said.
There was relief Monday, though, as authorities reported that it appeared no one had died. Less than a dozen people were hurt in the tornado that touched down after 11 p.m. Sunday, and all were expected to recover.
At least eight people were hospitalized in Naperville, where 22 homes were left "uninhabitable" and more than 130 homes were damaged in the suburb of 147,500 people that's about 25 miles (40 kilometers) west of Chicago.
