CHICAGO (AP) - The National Weather Service has issued a flood warning for parts of Cook, DuPage, Will and Lake counties until 11 a.m.

The Weather Service says that although rainfall is ending in the area, it will likely take several hours for the water to recede.

Two rounds of severe weather moved through the area Monday evening.

Meteorologist Casey Sullivan says local authorities reported homes damaged in the Plainfield area of Will County and localized flooding across the Chicago metro area after the second wave of storms Monday night.

Hundreds of flights were cancelled or delayed throughout the day at Chicago’s O’Hare and Midway airports.

Commonwealth Edison reported more than 142,000 customers in Cook County alone were without power early Tuesday.
