Extreme weather wreaked havoc on several towns, leaving some neighborhoods in ruins
Devastating storms inflicted major damage across several US states on Friday night, with reports of multiple deaths in the south and midwest. A “mass casualty” incident was declared after powerful gusts caused a roof collapse at a music venue in Belvidere, Illinois, according to local officials.
The collapse occurred during a concert at the Apollo Theatre in Belvidere, located some 70 miles northwest of Chicago, amid high winds from a severe thunderstorm. One person died at the scene, while 28 others were injured, city officials said.
A photo of the building published by another news outlet showed debris scattered in front of the venue and a fallen marquee, while footage shared online depicted the scene inside the theater, where a large pile of rubble could be seen. Panicked attendees were also shown in the video, with some helping to dig through the wreckage to search for survivors.
