Severe storms move through Chicago and Northwest Indiana on August 4, 2012. This video was taken around 4:15pm in Schererville, IN facing west towards Dyer and the Indiana/Illinois stateline, just twenty miles south of Chicago. This is the same storm that tore through Lollapalooza, which sent concert goers running for cover. The storm brought heavy rains and high winds with wind gusts well over 60mph at times. My plants took a pummeling on the balcony of my condo, but they survived unscathed.
