From a city press release:

A Lakeshore Flood Warning remains in effect until 4:00 p.m. Wednesday, October 31, 2012. Strong winds will continue to occur over Lake Michigan, and as a result, waves across the southern end of the lake will continue to exceed seasonable heights along the Cook County shoreline. The lakefront path closure will remain in effect during the Lakeshore Flood Warning or until conditions are no longer a public safety concern. The Department of Streets and Sanitation is responding to 28 calls for service for downed trees and/or branches. Residents are encouraged to call 311 to report any tree emergencies. All lanes of Lake Shore Drive remained open during the current weather event; however, should public safety concerns warrant, changes could occur. Since Lake Shore Drive was open, the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) was not forced to re-route buses.
