Phantom Regiment Sustains Storm Damage
The Phantom Regiment offices were a part of the casualties of the storm that hit Rockford on Labor Day. The storm caused flooding throughout the city and knocked power out to at least 5,000 homes and businesses. Fortunately no one was at the offices at the time of the flooding. The Regiment offices are located on the basement floor of the Burpee Center at Rockford College. The 4-5 inches of water brought by the storm caused the drainage system to fail.

The ceiling tiles gave way to the weight of the water as they fell to the floor allowing more water into the basement.
