RACINE - The Case IH plant in Racine County was hit by a tornado on Tuesday morning. The tornado blew off a 100 foot by 200 foot section of the roof.
According to Case spokesman Duane Nelson, two people were injured, but the injuries were described as minor.
One woman was walking from her car to the plant and her shoes were knocked off because of powerful winds. She got a cut on her foot and was taken to Wheaton Franciscan Hospital.
Nelson also described that several garage and access doors were blown off, winds blew down a tractor trailer on the parking lot, and there was significant water damage from sprinklers.
