Cardinal Stritch Catholic senior Austin Pratt saw his family’s home destroyed by an EF4 tornado that struck Lake Township in 2010, and volunteers arrived to help his family.

So, when Oregon residents saw their homes damaged by an EF2 tornado on Nov. 17, he wanted to do what he could. And, he brought some friends with him — a lot of them.

The Monday morning after the EF2 tornado plowed through Oregon, he sent a tweet to fellow students, and approximately 25 to 30 students from Stritch and Clay high schools went into action after Kateri Catholic and Oregon schools cancelled classes.

An EF2 tornado that went through Oregon caused massive destruction to homes surrounding Pearson Metropark, but the park suffered only minor damage.

“We feel very fortunate. Nobody was hurt, no buildings were damaged,” Metroparks communications director Scott Carpenter said.

“It's pretty much just tree damage,” Carpenter said. “It was a very close call with Johlin Cabin. The park manager said if you put your back to Johlin Cabin and looked back toward Pearson, you could see the path where the tornado came through. He was amazed that it missed the cabin. It looked like it went behind the fire station.”

15 years after Playboy’s Top 10, Sundance takes hit

Jim Walter, president of Toledo-based Great Eastern Theatre company, has Playboy magazine’s list of Top 10 drive-ins in his office, and it includes Oregon’s Sundance Kid on Navarre Ave.

Walter’s company took over the Sundance in the 1990s, and it is one of only 350 drive-ins still operating in the United States today. But Great Eastern has never faced a challenge like they do now, because high winds took down one of Sundance’s screen towers the evening of Nov. 17.

Nonetheless, Walter says the theatre should be up and running with two screens by spring.
