Winds whip up high waves along Chicago's lakeshore

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - Wind gusts of up to 50 miles per hour whipped up some big waves along Chicago's lakeshore Wednesday afternoon.

Officials say the high wind pushed some waves up to heights of 14 feet over piers and jetties. Fortunately, only minor flooding and some beach erosion were reported.

The high waves prompted a lakeshore flood warning that expired early Thursday morning.
