Storms ravaged much of the Kaneland area Friday. Here, heavy clouds from the west loom over Wiltse’s Farm Produce and Greenhouse in Maple Park on Friday morning. Farmers tending their fields were able to see the storm coming for miles and head to the barn for cover. Photo Courtesy of Wiltse’s Farm Produce and Greenhouse


The storms that ripped through the area this weekend caused a variety of damage. (Above) A trampoline ended up against a fence in Batavia and seems to be destroyed.


The track team’s heavy high jump mats were nearly blown over the fence at Batavia High School during the storm on Sunday.


Trees were uprooted throughout the area, causing power outages and damage that will take weeks to clean up.
