Chicago police were forced to cancel the city's Pride Parade early on Sunday after severe weather hit the city.
While the parade kicked off at noon, some revelers were forced to seek shelter shortly after 2 pm when dangerous lightning and heavy rain lashed the city's North Side, where the march was being held.
Authorities eventually made the decision to cancel the remainder of the parade at 2.50 pm.
Extra trains were scheduled in order to transport wet parade-goers out of the vicinity.
More than 100,000 people were estimated to be in attendance at the event.
