Powered by generators, Community First Bank in Fairview Heights was one of a few businesses able to service customers Monday in the storm-ravaged community.
Tim Evers, vice president, said he was pleased the bank did not have to disrupt service in spite of power outages in various parts of the city.
The news was not so good for many other parts of the city, known as a retail mecca.
Sections of Lincoln Trail (Highway 50) west of Illinois Route 159 were still closed nearly 48 hours after the powerful and deadly storm hit Sunday.
Destruction is widespread. Large lighted business signs are down, windows are blown out, shingles and siding are strewn about littering many blocks in the shopping district.
Portions of St. Clair Square mall re-opened Tuesday, after having been closed all day Monday.
