I live in Seneca IL, but my brother lives in Utica about 15 miles away from me. He lives in a Subdivision away from the downtown area that suffered all of the damage. I think that they have found the 4 or 5 folks that were missing all night and that they have three folks that are confirmed dead. The storms over here were brutal last night.
I guess that there are actually eight people that are confirmed dead in Utica now; tragic. We actually had very little damage at my home and at my brothers, the damage was all in the downtown area. Thanks for the concern.
I live in Mendota, IL about 20 miles to the north west of Utica. We didn't hardly have any amount of wind at all. Amazing how localized a storm like that can be. Definitely a tragic situation. It really hits home when a local small town is mentioned on the national news.
