Deadly storms impact Ravens-Bears game in Chicago

By Sid Saraf, FOXSports.com

UPDATE (Monday, 3:20 a.m. ET): FOX News is reporting that the storm system which impacted the Ravens-Bears game did “significant damage in parts of central Illinois,” killing six people and flattening entire neighborhoods.

Throughout the night, authorities and rescuers were searching rubble for people who may have been trapped.

“Literally, neighborhoods are completely wiped out,” Rep. Aaron Schock, R-Ill., who said he was in Washington, told FOX News. “I’m looking at subdivisions of twenty to thirty homes and there’s not a home there.”

UPDATE: The game resumed after a long delay. The Bears went on to win 23-20 in overtime.

Week 11 brought some nasty weather across NFL Nation on Sunday as the action at Solider Field was brought to a halt thanks to inclement weather.

Heavy rain and wind caused both teams to leave the field with 4:51 remaining in the first quarter. The Ravens had a 10-0 lead over the Bears at the time. The images of the stadium are something to see:
