Illinois Tornadoes April 14, 2015
Richard Durbin, D-IL
"This is an all-too-common picture in my part of the world in central Illinois and downstate Illinois. This is the devastation from a tornado of dramatic power and strength. Two twisters—one of them a category EF-4, with wind speeds of up to 200 miles an hour—tore through DeKalb and Ogle Counties and badly damaged the towns of Fairdale and Rochelle last Thursday evening. That picture tells part of the story of the tornadoes’ path, where giant trees were uprooted, homes ripped from their foundations. The damage is stunning."
