Several other communities – such as Bolingbrook, Naperville, Romeoville, and Oak Lawn – experienced flash flooding after 5” of rain fell in 1 hour.
Lutheran Church Charities also assessed damage on Tuesday in Sauk Village, Illinois, and Dyer, Indiana, after a tornado touched down in these communities that straddle the Illinois-Indiana border. It is reported that 100 homes were damaged between these 2 towns with much tree and roof damage. We will continue to monitor storms throughout this week and assess any damage that occurs to determine if assistance is needed.
Please keep all in your prayers, including the safety of our LERT volunteers as they serve those who are affected by the storms. We ask that you prayerfully consider financial support to help us help the individuals in the communities who are trying to recover from the storm damage.
