Storm Blows Roof Off Jefferson Street Hotel
Sunday night's severe storm blew a large section of the roof off at the Best Budget Inn, 4200 W. Jefferson St. in Joliet.

Joliet police told WJOL that one person was injured — although not seriously — by flying debris at the hotel, located near Jefferson Street/Route 52 and I-55.

WGN's Skycam 9 captured raw video of the damaged Best Budget Inn.

An employee who answered the phone at the hotel Monday morning said the business is closed for repairs following the storm. He said the hotel could reopen in about a week.
