Fans, players cleared from Ravens-Bears game due to severe weather (GIF)

The Baltimore Ravens' game against the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field has been temporarily suspended in the first quarter due to lightning in the area.

As a precautionary measure, stadium officials cleared the the stands with fans exiting in an orderly fashion. Stadium officials have indicated that the soonest the game might resume is 2:25 p.m. ET, and even that estimation appears overly optimistic considering the severe weather.

There are now extremely heavy winds, steady rain and ominous dark clouds surrounding the stadium. Wind is blowing trash all over the field and stands.

The area is under a tornado watch, according to The Weather Channel and local meteorologists. Both teams have headed inside to the locker room.

The Ravens lead 10-0 behind a touchdown run from Ray Rice and a field goal by Justin Tucker.
