Weekend Storms Leave Path of Destruction

Weekend storms that featured tornadoes, flooding and lightning from the Midwest to the East Coast killed at least eight people.

Indiana, where at least one person died, was one of the hardest hit states as at least 10 inches of rain fell. Four people died in Michigan as a result of falling trees and drownings, while one person was killed by a lightning strike in Connecticut.

Big cities were not immune to the storms, as many Chicago residents also spent most of Sunday cleaning up.

Residents in the northern and southern suburbs cleaned up following seven tornadoes. Residents had to deal with fallen trees, downed power lines and overturned vehicles.
