DONNA KELLEY, CNN ANCHOR: A little bit more to tell you about in the Chicago area, as they have had some flash flooding there. If you were joining us just a few minutes ago, we were showing you pictures. Let's look again courtesy of WGN.

LEON HARRIS, CNN ANCHOR: Wow.

KELLEY: There's a red car with that water right up to the hood. Just a couple of moments ago there was a back hoe in the water, a big yellow piece of construction equipment, and it drove toward the red car there and it looks like it must be under the bridge now because it's kind of disappeared from sight.

But Chad Myers, our meteorologist, was here, and he said that in the Chicago area it rained about two and a half inches in one hour and so this is around the Edens Expressway, which is closed.

HARRIS: And, you know, as deep as that water looks right there, moments ago we had a camera move down the highway just a tad bit further. There was another car that was even deeper under the water than that. All you could see was the very top of the roof. You couldn't even see the hood. There you can see the hood and the roof. Interesting.

KELLEY: We'll keep track of that and we'll bring you more when we get it and check in with the forecast certainly as we carry on here and also some business for you right now.
