A wave of thunderstorms hurling high winds forced two airports in Illinois to suspend flights briefly. The Federal Aviation Administration suspended flights for 90 minutes from Midway and O’Hare International airports in Chicago during the afternoon when thunderstorms stretched across the state, leaving three people in Woodridge injured in a freak lightning strike. The National Weather Service issued a tornado warning for Kankakee, Ill., after a twister was spotted about five miles west of the city. Torrential rain, hail and high winds hit parts of Indiana, blowing a plane into a hangar in Ft. Wayne. No injuries were reported.
