Share this post

As meteorologists were tracking strong thunderstorms Saturday, the Chicago office of the National Weather Service was hit by lightning.  The building in suburban Romeoville took a direct strike just after noon, taking down the radar and their phones. An electronics technician has been assessing the situation and amount of damage to equipment and communication lines. Their web site remained active, and you can also reach them by Facebook.
