VIDEO: Sandy Hits Lake Michigan, Wind Advisory

Secure anything that could get blown by high winds. Also, share your photos of the storm with us here - and check out our pictures of Lake Michigan's waves.

While Superstorm Sandy is expected to mostly bombard the East Coast, Chicago and its suburbs aren't exempt from its aftermath. 

The National Weather Service has issued a gale watch in effect from 1 a.m. Tuesday to 7 p.m. Tuesday night, with winds of 60 mph expected along the shoreline, and gusts of up to 50 mph inland.

Read the full rundown of North Shore weather warnings here. 

We braved the winds this afternoon to get some photos and a video of the waves at Lake Forest Beach. But we want to see yours too! To submit photos, click the green "Upload Photos and Videos" button below. Make sure to let us know where you took the photo. 

We'll continue to keep you updated on any weather alerts.
