CHICAGO (CBS) — Severe thunderstorms moved through the Chicago area Thursday afternoon, bringing heavy rains and high winds.
A flash flood warning remains in effect for northern Cook County and northeast DuPage County until 10 p.m. The storm is reported to have produced quarter-size hail and 60 mph wind gusts.
The storm comes one day after heavy rains pounded northern Cook County and Lake County, prompting a search in Lake Barrington for a man believed to have been swept up by flood waters.
(CBS) If ever a song was attached to a team, it’s Chelsea Dagger and the Chicago Blackhawks.
The song, sung by The Fratellis, is synonymous with the Blackhawks, playing through the United Center and countless Chicagoland bars whenever the team scores a goal.
In a fitting tribune to a song that defines a franchise, the Blackhawks closed out their championship parade and rally at Grant Park with none other than Chelsea Dagger.
Check out the video below as various players hoist and kiss Lord Stanley’s Cup before a sea of hundreds of thousands of faithful Blackhawks fans.
Dear little girls,
For all of you who love to twerk… there is nothing wrong with living your life you are young & thinking no one can judge you!
You are completely right!
Just please don’t live so freely that you lose yourself in a place you can’t come back from.
Please don’t lose yourself so much & become someone you don’t recognize yourself.
People will talk about all day long they love to dwell on the negative but if you are fueling people to disrespect you because you don’t even respect yourself, Can you really be mad???
I’m not coming at you rude or disrespectful…
Just putting something out there to think about
I am excited and nervous at the same time!
I am working on building a brand for this business and I enjoy doing the work it takes to get where I need be, but it always makes me wonder if I did enough! Will enough people come to support what I am doing?
Will they enjoy themselves enough to talk about & inspire more people to come?
Then I remember I can only do what I can & learn from what was bad & continue building on better!
Oh my goodness the streets of Chicago were crazy today!
I am just as happy as the next for my hometown!
I love my city as much as the next… but Blackhawk fans that were going absolutely ridiculously crazy need to calm the f**k down!!!!
Injuring yourself & other just to celebrate is so freaking stupid!!! You are so happy you are going to get arrested!!!
You are so happy its just the day to go to jail huh???
Don’t be stupid celebrate with so respect for our city for the team!
They are the hockey players not you!!!! So goofy!!!
Please CALM THE F*@K DOWN!!!!!

CHICAGO (CBS) — The Blackhawks celebration involved more planning and much more security than you may think.
CBS2’s Jay Levine was behind the scenes today, and got unprecedented access to security.
It started with street closings at midnight and a sweep of the entire route for explosives well before dawn.
And throughout the day CBS2 rode along with Chicago Police Deputy Chief Steve George, the department’s go-to guy for big event security.

“We’ve essentially got three different things. The procession down Washington, the parade on Columbus, and the rally in the park,” he said.
George’s morning started early—as he checked his troops, gave final orders, and told us why they moved the celebration from Michigan Avenue to Grant Park.
“Putting that many people in downtown in what’s really a canyon, there was nowhere to go. I remember 911 calls of people trapped in revolving doors…
