Weather halts Bears game as several tornadoes confirmed

CHICAGO (AP) - The National Weather Service says tornadoes have touched down in several Illinois communities, as intense thunderstorms sweep across parts of the Midwest.

There are reports of property damage in the small central Illinois community of Washington.

In Chicago, the Bears' game against the Baltimore Ravens is being delayed because of heavy rain and wind.

Play was stopped with just under five minutes left in the first quarter with the Ravens leading 10-0 on Sunday. Baltimore's Justin Tucker had just kicked a 52-yard field goal when fans were ordered to seek cover.

Players stayed on the sideline for a few minutes before heading to the locker room.
