Demolition underway on Pike Co. building destroyed by tornado

QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) - Demolition is underway at a building destroyed by an E-F2 tornado that swept through Pike County, Ill. last month.

Although there are plans to re-build the Parks Livestock Facility near Detroit, the manager says he doesn't know when the new building will be finished.

Multiple structures on Highway 106 were heavily damaged in the storm.

Sheriff Paul Petty reported damage to farm buildings and tree lines near Martinsburg, but said none were serious.
