A tornado was also spotted on the ground in Coal City, and then was confirmed in southwest suburban Frankfort according to WLS-TV, although there are no reports of damage. However, the Bears game against the Ravens had a nearly 2 hour delay as severe weather and high winds swept through the area. 'Eyewitness News' Sports Anchor Peter Fleischer is at the game and will have a full report on 'Eyewitness News Local at 9:00 and 10:00.'
In the Stateline, some semis traveling up I-39 were blown onto their sides by straight line winds, but other than that, damage was minimal. Many areas saw thunder, lightning, hail and heavy rains, but no tornado activity.
