One Killed in Chicago After Tent Collapse


Tragically one person has died following a tent collapse when thunderstorms tore through a Chicago suburb festival. Furthermore, more than a dozen people were injured and one man died after a large tent was town down from a severe storm at a fair in Wood Dale, Illinois. The premises accident happened Sunday afternoon at a four-day festival that was held at the Wood Dale Junior High School. The man who was killed is yet to be identified.

In an unrelated weather emergency in Rosemont, Illinois, high, strong winds and hail from the storm took down a tent that was so big it covered two softball fields. Luckily in that tent collapse no one was inside at the time it went down. That strong storm cell took down power lines and spit out golf ball size hail as well as 60 mph winds. The severe weather evacuated a Lollapalooza concert at Grant Park, and also put the concert on hold for one hour.
