In Americas, Floods & Storms, News Headlines

A band of severe thunderstorms sweeping across the US midwest has left tens of thousands without power and caused widespread damage.

The massive storm front stretches over 1,000 kilometres.

Another 80,000 households have lost power in and around Chicago, after Illinois was lashed by high winds, hail and heavy rains.

The storm front is now moving towards Canada. Tornado watches have already been issued in Ontario.
