The Midwest is taking a beating tonight from a massive storm. Tornadoes have touched down, the word “derecho” is being thrown around, and O’Hare International Airport has been paralyzed by massive flight cancellations. It doesn’t look like it has yet materialized into the disaster that some predicted, but it’s still quite a large event, and it looks to be just getting started.

Photos and videos are pouring in from the affected areas, and it’s clear that this is not your average thunderstorm.
