Wind Damage, Floods Batter Central Illinois (Again); Gillespie High School Heavily Damaged

Relief is finally in sight after a week of wet and often violent weather. 


Central Illinois rode out another round of strong storms Friday night, with high winds and a possible tornado causing more damage south of Springfield.  Gillespie High School sustained heavy damage, with the roof being torn off the gymnasium.  The high winds once again brought down trees and large limbs in southern Sangamon County, causing some property damage.


And very heavy rains caused flash floods that closed a number of area roads temporarily.  A flood warning was issued for southwestern Sangamon County through midday Saturday, and a flash flood watch continued through Saturday evening for most of Central Illinois.
