CHICAGO (AP) — Authorities say no one was injured when a glass panel fell several stories onto Chicago’s famous Michigan Avenue shopping district.

The glass shattered on the street and sidewalk Thursday night when storms rolled the city, bringing wind gusts that topped 40 miles per hour.

The glass was part of a window sign at the Water Tower Place mall.

The National Weather Service says a wind advisory remains in effect for the city until 3 p.m. Forecasters say gusts could reach 45 miles per hour.
