Potentially Dangerous Flooding in Chicagoland

The line of thunderstorms between the two arrows is producing very heavy rains. A few spots have reported three inches. At least two more may form bringing localized totals to 5 inches or more leading to dangerous flooding.
  • If you live in a flood-prone area, be prepared to move to higher ground at a moment's notice.
  • Make sure you have quick access to your driver's license, cash, and other essential items. Take your medicines and put them in a baggie so that you can simply grab them, if necessary. 
  • Whatever you do, do not try to cross flooded areas by foot or by car. Turn around, don't drown.
