Tornado Aftermath: Governor to Visit Pontiac

The town of Pontiac is in recovery mode after an EF-2 tornado ripped through it late Wednesday night.

It touched down around 10:15, leaving four people hurt, two of which were seriously injured. On top of that there has been significant property damage and vehicles destroyed.

Gov. Bruce Rauner issued a statement Thursday, saying:

"Given the reports of tornado touchdowns across north-central Illinois last night, we are fortunate things are not worse and are thankful there were no fatalities.

Diana and I are thinking of those who were injured or suffered property damage in the storms and send our prayers to you."

The governor is expected to visit Pontiac on Friday.
