Severe weather causes damages, power outages in Chicago suburbs

Severe storms moved through the Chicago area Saturday night, knocking down trees and causing damage in several suburbs.

stormIn far Northwest suburban Hampshire, winds topping 50 miles-an-hour flipped over a construction trailer.

A woman was inside of that trailer at the time and was rescued by several people who were nearby.
She was taken to the hospital for injuries.
That same line of storms knocked down several trees and fences in Huntley.

There were reports of baseball-sized hail.

The storms knocked out power to thousands of ComEd customers throughout the region.
