Wild Weather at Wrigley Field

By Jason Samenow

A powerful line of thunderstorms raked the Chicago area last night with winds to hurricane-force. The storms prompted an evacuation of the concourse at Wrigley Field when a tornado warning was issued and sirens sounded. No tornadoes were reported, but strong winds and torrential rain swept through the stadium.

Watch as fans flee the stands in the video below...

The weather disturbance that triggered those storms will pass through our area this evening, and may set off severe weather here (see our latest forecast for more info).

Have you ever been at a major sporting/outdoor event during severe weather? Tell us your experience. (Note: commenting may not be possible at times due to a planned server migration).
