Severe storms across Illinois bring flooding, 2 reported tornadoes

MANHATTAN, Ill. — Authorities say several rounds of Midwest storms brought flooding to northern Indiana and reports of two brief tornadoes.

The National Weather Service says heavy rain Tuesday afternoon and evening brought flooding across much of the area along and north of Interstate 88.

The weather service says some parts of the area saw 2 to 4 inches (5 to 10 centimeters) of rain.

A tornado was reported near the Will County community of Manhattan, causing building damage and power outages. A storm survey is planned Wednesday.

The weather service also says a tornado was reported near Maple Park in Kane County, but no damage was reported. Video showed a brief touchdown that kicked up some water in a field. The tornado lasted a few seconds, so no storm survey is planned.

Algonquin is dealing with significant flooding and high-standing water due to the severe weather.

The following streets in Algonquin are closed due to flooding: Cumberland Pkwy near Ryan Pkwy, Cumberland at Glacier, Teton Pkwy, Woods Creek Lane, Cumberland near Chase St., Glacier & Glacier Ct., and Applewood at Thorneapple Lane. Towne Park, Holder Park, and Cornish Park.
