In Arlington Heights, police and firefighters responded to a report of two people stranded in a Pontiac Sunfire in rising flood water in the southbound lanes of Arlington Heights Road, just north of Burr Oak Drive.

There was also a report of other vehicles also stalling out nearby.

At least one northbound vehicle hit the water at high speed, causing a large wake, after emergency vehicles with emergency light flashing were in the area. That vehicle stalled out about 75 yards down the road.

Flooding was also reported on southbound lanes of Arlington Heights Road south of Hintz Road at Suffield Drive, Waterman Avenue south of Kensington Road, and Oakton Street and Yale Avenue — across the intersection.

Stranded motorists were also reported on Rohlwing Road near Harvest Bible Church in Rolling Meadows, and Highland Boulevard and Jones Road in Hoffman Estates. In Lake Forest, people needed rescue from the roof of their vehicle on Deerpath Road under US 41. Up to 10 people were rescued from several vehicles stranded in the area.

Arlington Heights also responded to at least one flooded basement with an electrical hazard, and a flooded below-grade garage with 5 feet of water filling the garage.

In the block of 2600 North Drury Lane firefighters responded to a report of a house struck by lightning followed by a hissing sound and the smell of natural gas. Firefighters discovered a gas leak, shut down the gas leak and ventilated the house. Initially firefighters did not find any evidence of damage from a lightning strike.

A lightning strike of a house on Newhaven Drive in Hawthorn Woods knocked down part of a chimney and started an attic fire about 7:06 p.m. Saturday. The exterior fire was extinguished by 7:20 p.m. A man was initially reported to be injured by falling objects from the chimney before the fire was discovered. Lake Zurich Fire later reported there were no injuries at the fire scene.

A possible lightning strike or water-related short circuit started a small fire in the soffit area of a garage near the front of a house on Whispering Oak Drive in Buffalo Grove about 8:15 p.m. Saturday. Firefighters had to chase smoke in the attic to find the area that was burning. The small fire was extinguished by 8:44 p.m.

Over 250 flights were canceled at O’Hare and 37 flights were canceled at Midway on Saturday October 14, 2017.
