Share this post

More severe weather is expected in the Great Lakes region today, including Chicago, which is under a Severe Thunderstorm Watch until 5 pm CDT (Mon May 12). There is a risk for severe weather in Northwest Indiana again today. The forecast says we can also expect unseasonably warm and humid conditions today before it turns much cooler Tuesday night and for much of the week.  Here's the Chicago National Weather Service website for forecast updates:http://www.crh.noaa.gov/lot/  (refresh to update) . 
Here in the Region, residents continue cleaning up from Sunday's severe weather which toppled trees across multiple communities including Lake Station, Portage and South Haven.  Thousands of NIPSCO customers remained without power following the damage from yesterday's storms.  At about 8 pm, a tornado was reported on the ground Sunday just west of Rensselaer in the area of I-65 and State Road 114.  Meteorologists say a National Weather Service damage survey is not planned for the tornado report in Jasper County, and that emergency Management has been contacted regarding the tornado, and will follow up with the National Weather Service if/when damage is found.  There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.
