CHICAGO (AP) - Weather officials have issued severe weather warnings, including tornado watches, for portions of northern Illinois.

The National Weather Service issued tornado watches on Wednesday evening for several counties including Cook, Boone, McHenry and Lake. Severe thunderstorm warnings are also in effect for some places in the evening.

Weather officials say most of eastern Iowa and northwest Illinois are at an “enhanced risk” for severe weather. Weather officials say the main threats are large hail, damaging winds, lightning and torrential rain that could lead to flooding.

The Chicago Department of Aviation said late Wednesday that nearly 100 flights had been canceled at O’Hare International Airport.
