Governor Rauner announces second person dead in northern Illinois

FLAGG, Ill. (AP) – Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner confirms a second person has died in the northern Illinois community of Fairdale after tornadoes struck the region.

Rauner told reporters Friday in Flagg that two people had died. He was surveying damage in region.

Among the hardest hit areas was the small farming community of Fairdale where one woman was killed. She was identified as 67-year-old Geraldine M. Schultz. Roughly a dozen other people were injured Thursday after at least one tornado swept through tiny Fairdale.

The second person has not been identified.

It’s an unincorporated town of about 150, about 80 miles northwest of Chicago.
