In Waukegan, residents gather outside Pine Grove Apartments, where gusts tore off parts of the roof on two buildings. “I was crying and trying to go downstairs,” one resident said. “Everything was flying. A tree right in front burst. I ran out with my shoes off, barefoot.” Despite the damage throughout the Chicago area, the storm caused only a few injuries. (Chris Walker/Chicago Tribune)
