From Today’s Daily Herald.
The National Weather Service confirmed damaging tornadoes moved through the suburbs and Chicago in the late afternoon and evening Wednesday, with one touching down near O’Hare International Airport and “multiple tornadoes in Kane County.”
The weather service office in Romeoville told the Shaw Local News Network it had reports of touchdowns in Lily Lake and South Elgin. Social media users posted images and videos of what appeared to be twin tornadoes in Kane County, west of Elgin and South Elgin in the Campton Hills area.
The tornado by O’Hare was “touching the ground intermittently” about 7 p.m. and moving east, according to a tweet from the weather service, with “additional circulations” south of O’Hare. Cook County had been under a tornado warning after a separate tornado was confirmed by the weather service east of South Elgin, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.
