MARENGO, Ill. --

We're getting our first look at damage caused by severe thunderstorms tonight in McHenry County.

A large tree was brought down by winds and landed on a house and pick up truck in the 500 block of Prairie in Marengo.

The home owner tells us there's damage to his roof, and significant damage to the truck.

He said the powerful winds only lasted a few minutes.

Other damaging winds were reported in Winnebago County and in Southern Wisconsin.

The storms lost some power as they got closer to Chicago.
