Southern Illinois ravaged by severe storms. Some areas without power for days/weeks. Lewis Elementary School suffered severe structural damage, forcing students to share the Middle School next door.

Without a doubt, Lewis School was one of the worst buildings hit. I was shocked when I saw it after the storm.

Pleasant hill was really bad. . . . Luckily, all the trees around my house are really small, ones my family has planted since we moved, so we were okay for the most part. There was roof damage, of course, but I'm glad we don't live in a wooded area.

Good good. Yeah there wasn't anything god aweful by us. One up the road a little but that was taken care of pretty fast. Chainsaw wielding neighbors.

I never knew so many people were proficient with chainsaws until the storm's aftermath.

That storm really was devistating. You thought that it wasn't a big deal when you were in school, but when the buses left, it was like we had entered a paraell universe. O O

Nice picture. They still don't have that school fully repair, though, and it's school right now. . . . > >;
