CHICAGO — The south suburbs were among the hardest hit by this weekend's severe storms.

Heavy rains flooded roads, stranding drivers, some of whom had to be rescued. Numerous roads were still closed Saturday morning.

In Manteno, Oktoberfest was cancelled when a storm swept through and blew the tents away.

Over 1,000 flights were canceled in Chicago Friday while severe thunderstorms raked portions of Illinois. O'Hare International Airport reported 934 flight cancellations by Friday evening and Midway International Airport reported another 129. Delays of over an hour were reported at O'Hare.

As of Sunday morning, crews in New Lenox started to open up some of the roads previously closed due to flooding.
