    Sparta and Tornado

    Does anyone know if Sparta was hit by the recent Tornado's in southern ILL. IF so, how much damage if any?

    We are all good. No damage in town or the WSRC that I heard about.

    One of our neighbors of our property in the country had some barn damage but just from high winds. No Tornado's that I am aware of.

    Harrisburg, IL that was destroyed by the F4 Tornado a few days ago is actually about 78 miles away from Sparta.

    Glad Matt & family are safe. Being a native Hoosier my heart goes out to everyone affected especially in my native state. While I'm in the warm weather at Silver Dollar, my wife in North Georgia has spent the last two days in our basement. Cleveland TN just North of us got hit bad. It looks like more is coming. Everyone....be safe!

    Thanks blade. Good luck at the Dollar. I saw where the storms are headed towards Georgia and they actually had some warnings. Hope it all passes with no damage or injuries. See you this summer.

    Bill,

    That could only happen if it wiped out Chicago and all its cronies. That would be more than a 20 million dollar improvement though. That would be termed a World improvement.

    Matt,

    That would be like hitting the "Jackpot" in more ways than one ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    To be honest, joking or not, I wouldn't wish a Tornado to hit anyone!
