    Tornado headed right for downtown Chi. I'll get a nice view on my 9th floor apt. Don't worry, I'll get some good video footage.

    Soldier Field was evacuated WAY too late. It's not easy to move 61k people. You have to allow more than 8 minutes. I'm guessing there were still people in the elements when high wind hit.

    Goes to show you why YOU need to be aware of your weather surroundings.
