This evening a strong front came through the northern Illinois area spanning into northwest Indiana. Funnel clouds and tornadoes were sighted from as far southwest as Pontiac, IL up through Hammond, IN. Shortly after the tornado hit Hammond, IN it dissipated. Massive devastation has been seen in the wake of this storm and subsequent path.
The following photos were taken from the 3700 block of 42nd Place near Kleinman Road this evening at approximately 7pm 06/07/2008. The view is looking north toward the Hessville section of Hammond and the western section of Gary. Click on the image below to see the photos in a larger size.
