A severe storm warning delayed the start of the Chicago Cubs game against the Houston Astros, which had been scheduled to start at 1:20 p.m.

By 1:25, crews were coming out to remove a tarp covering the field. While fans are sat under protected areas or in the concourse, the sky suddenly brightened, and no rain fell.

Fans were awaiting word on when the game would start.
