CHICAGO — Crews resumed their cleanup work Monday in Chicago following a weekend storm that lashed the city’s lakefront with large waves and high winds, stripping away sections of asphalt along pedestrian paths.

The storm Saturday and early Sunday toppled trees and power lines and prompted the cancellation of more than 1,200 flights at Chicago’s Midway and O’Hare international airports.

The biggest impact was along the lakefront, where 20-foot-tall waves flooded streets and left portions of Chicago’s lakefront path system in pieces, with crumbling asphalt and piles of sand in several locations.

“It was rough,” said South Shore resident Herbert Johnson. “Very rough, never seen it that rough.”

No one was seriously hurt.
