  • Tornado touches down in Chicago suburbs; damages homes, knocks out power

A tornado with strong rotation and a pronounced debris signature on radar was confirmed late Sunday in suburban Chicago, forecasters said. The website pointed to social media posts that showed extensive damage to cars and rooftops in the area.

The tornado touched down near route 53/75th street in Woodridge, DuPage County, around 11pm ET on Sunday.

At least five people in Naperville were taken to the hospital with injuries and more than 100 residences were damaged, along with countless trees, the weather service said.

A CBS Chicago reporter tweeted that six people were injured in total and some residents were evacuated to nearby shelters.
