People who lost their homes when a tornado roared through their small Illinois town last week received help from a top executive of a company that grows medical cannabis in the city.

Delavan Mayor Liz Skinner said on Sunday that Tim McGraw (no, not the country singer), CEO of Revolution Enterprises, is paying for hotel rooms for residents displaced by Thursday night’s tornado.

More than 50 homes were damaged from the tornado, which at one point had a wind speed of 120 mph and tore a 1-mile path through the community of just under 1,700 residents (U.S. Decennial Census).

No one was killed from the tornado.

“The alternative was cots set up at the American Legion Hall by Red Cross,” Mayor Skinner said.

Revolution Enterprises, which operates a 75,000-square-foot facility in Delavan, took no damage.
