Short Lived Tornado Sweeps Through Northern Waukegan

(Waukegan, IL)  A likely tornado swept through northern Waukegan on Tuesday afternoon, though it was short lived.

The National Weather Service has not yet confirmed a touchdown, but several videos posted to social media show the twister forming.

Waukegan officials say the quick funnel flipped a car at an intersection, and caused minimal damage to at least one business, and some trees and power lines.

The storm cell that produced the likely tornado, also caused several reported water spouts on Lake Michigan.

Only one minor injury was reported from the storm.
