On Thursday, the Chicago weather and the world wide web were both experiencing a significant drought.
But on Thursday, that drought was in fact a very mild one, with only an occasional rain.
And if you were lucky enough to be in one of the city’s most popular neighborhoods, it was raining heavily.
The city of Chicago, home to about 5 million people, was experiencing its driest day since January 1, 2017.
It was also the driest on record for December, according to the US National Weather Service.
Here’s a look at the latest weather news from around the globe.
More from The Hill: The US president, who was briefed on the report, called it a “significant event” and “very concerning.”
The White House issued a statement saying President Donald Trump was aware of the “unprecedented rainfall” in Chicago, and he was in touch with state and local officials.
“I am working to ensure the city of Detroit receives the necessary assistance to repair its infrastructure,” he said in the statement.
Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan was quick to praise the storm.
“The damage and damage to infrastructure is enormous,” Duggan said.
“We are going to continue to support Detroit as long as we can.”
He said the city is on a path to getting back to normal, but he cautioned that this is not the end.
“It’s a very important first step,” Dugggan said of the storm in a statement.
“In the next few days, we will see what the impact is going to be on people in Detroit.”
It was unclear exactly how much damage was caused by the storm, but the National Weather Services office said the damage to power lines, roads, bridges, dams, sewers, levees, and other infrastructure is estimated at $300 million.
