Morning Shift

Coal City: One month later

The weather this week has been pretty calm, but we have had a summer of powerful storms and some of them led to more dangerous weather last month. Nine tornadoes tore through parts of Illinois, including two that touched down in the western town of Coal City. There were no reports of serious injury, but homes and property sustained major damage. WBEZ’s Yolanda Perdomo was in Coal City the morning after the tornadoes to talk to residents about how they planned to rebuild. She went back one month later to see where relief efforts stand. She joins us to share some of those residents’ stories. (WBEZ/Yolanda Perdomo)
