Twenty Boats Sunk or Damaged in Chicago Harbor Due to High Winds

A large number of boats (estimates are ~ 20) were ripped off their moorings last night in Chicago. Some sunk. We had a long period of strong winds (sustained at about 35 knots overnight) with gusts to 55 knots. Could have been worse were it not for the fact that the harbor is roughly half empty as the season is nearly over.

They don't call it "the windy city" for nothing. Did your boat get damaged?
