Officials say a radar-confirmed tornado swept through suburban Chicago, damaging homes, toppling trees, knocking out power and causing some injuries.

More than 1 million people were under a tornado warning late Sunday night as an intense line of storms ripped through the Chicago area.

About a dozen homes were damaged, and four people were rushed to area hospitals with minor injuries, CBS Chicago reported. At least one tornado touched down and left in its wake a path of destruction through Naperville, Woodridge and Darien, according to the National Weather Service.

Fox 32 Chicago reported that there was also significant damage in South Haven, Indiana.

The paper said the tornado struck at about 11:11 p.m. on Sunday.

According to the Tribune, wind speeds are estimated to have reached 135 miles per hour, and officials say debris was launched up to 10,000 feet in the air. "Severe T-storm Watch remains in effect for a bit longer for Will, Kankakee, Ford, Iroquois, and northwest in counties", NWS Chicago said on Twitter.

Severe thunderstorms also brought gusting winds and drenching rains to parts of MI.
