Hutchinson reacts to Coal City tornado damage

coalcitytornadoNumerous homes and a fire station were damaged by a tornado that hit the village of Coal City last night, less than two years after a tornado damaged the village. State Senator Toi Hutchinson (D-Chicago Heights) extends her thoughts and prayers to those who are recovering from the storm.

“Although the damage in Coal City is extensive, there have miraculously been no reported fatalities and only a few minor injuries,” Hutchinson said. “I am so thankful for fire department personnel, area police, first responders and the Illinois State Police who are on the ground in Coal City helping those in need.”  

The Red Cross has established a shelter for residents in need at the United Methodist Church, located at 6805 E. McArdle Road.
