NewsCut has a few readers in Chicago, so here’s hoping this can be verified firsthand. The Chicago Tribune is reporting the area will be hit by 25 foot waves from Lake Michigan later today.

The jogging paths along the lakefront have been closed, but not Lake Shore Drive.
Here’s what a 10-foot wave looked like in late September.
