This week, we simply can't forget those epic storms that just rolled through northeastern Illinois and the midwest. This awesome shot by Monika Thorpe shows some amazing lightning striking around the back of a set of clouds in Chicago. Remember to always stay safe in severe weather! TheChicago Red Cross has some great tips on not only emergency preparedness (including an emergency kit you can put together) during thunderstorms, but on what to do during a tornado warning, and flash floods.
