Squirt, the dog, examines the backyard of Cherie deBie's property Monday after storms on Sunday night damaged many trees and her pool. Cherie woke up around 1 a.m. to the sound of a loud bang, and looked outside to see that the trees along the back of her property had been damaged. Monday morning, Cherie woke up to see that her pool had also been damaged and that many trees on her property had been damaged. Other neighbors' properties along Stouffer Road outside Sterling also were damaged. Luckily, deBie's house remained intact. More storms rolled through the Sauk Valley on Monday afternoon. The rest of the week, however, is forecast to be dry.
