Dixon Correctional Center Sustains Storm Damage 

Severe storms swept through Lee County last night causing a power outage and significant damage to Dixon Correctional Center. The Illinois Department of Corrections is in the process of assessing the full extent of the damage, however due to roof damage in several units, 76 inmates are being temporarily transferred to Pontiac CC. No one was injured in the storm and emergency generators are supplying power to the facility as it remains on lockdown. The safety and security of staff and inmates remains the top priority and the department is addressing this swiftly.
