Flood warnings for both rivers are in effect until further notice, the weather service said. A flood advisory continues through Thursday for the east branch of the DuPage River in Bolingbrook, affecting Will County.

The volatile spring weather resulted in quarter-sized hail that fell on the area overnight, from Lake Holiday in northwestern Frederick County to Inwood, W.Va. It occurs when rain falls through cold pockets of air, solidifying it before it hits the ground.

Floodwaters covered a baseball diamond on 6 Mile Road, according to the Weather Service.

If the sky darkens, it's best to get inside or off the road, he said.
