150,000 places were left without power in Michigan after last night's storms and 283,000 in Illinois, with 215,000 of those being in the Chicago area alone. The storms were so powerful, it left the Willis Tower (fka Sears Tower) with a few shattered windows.
I took this pic about 12 hours ago. Actually, it's from a video I took, because I and my camera don't react quickly enough to take a snapshot. This storm lost all its power when it went over Lake Michigan, after hitting Chicago.
