It's been a while since we've had flooding like this around the greater Chicago area. There are sinkholes on the South side, geysers erupting from storm drains on the North and northwest sides, and water shutting down expressways. We've put together a handful of photos gathered via social media of what commuters and homeowners are dealing with this morning. Call this a STORMify, y'all!

If you have photos of the flooding affecting Chicago, please tag them with "Chicagoist" and add them to our Flickr pool.
