Neighbors say it looked like a tornado-- high winds blew the roof off of a Hillside home on Sidorof Lane, near the Prospect Heights trailhead. 

No one was hurt here when the wind whipped through around 9 a.m. Tuesday and took the top right off of a log home, where Carey Cossaboom, a neighbor says a woman lives with her school-age daughter.

"She's freaked out right now, but she's fine. Her daughter's at school and she didn't get hit by any debris so, she's fine," Cossaboom said, as he helped remove belongings from the house. "She said it sounded like a freight train from where she was. She was up in her bedroom, she wasn't feeling well today. And then the roof ripped off her house."
