I have a cousin who lives in Illinois with her husband and 2 girls. They live about 30 miles from Chicago but they called and said they just had heavy rain, hail and winds so they pulled through alright!
I live in the part of the US where we get fires and earthquakes for the most part which I'm used to dealing with. I have lived in many places and I have been through 5 major earthquakes, various fires, terribly high winds, hurricanes, funnel clouds, devastating floods, a tsunami warning etc...I've seen it all but I know with tornadoes if you hear the warning sirens go and get to your basement immediately!

We had a serious wind and a rain storm but no tornados where we were. I think it was trying to die down as it got out our way. Had to call and check on my parents in WI though and they said it was bad. There were a few pretty close to them.

We had some bad rain and scary wind and they have confirmed OH did get hit with 4, but not near where I live. I lived in AL for 3 years so I know what it's like to have to deal with tornados....prayers for those they did hit.

It didn't effect me here in the Southeast but it saddens my heart to see the destruction in the tornado zone.

It looked just horrible on the news. God protect and bless everyone involved.
