Torrential rain, lightning, thunder and strong winds forced President Barack Obama to cancel a Memorial Day speech he’d scheduled at the Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery in Illinois.

Obama took the stage at midday under the cover of a large umbrella to tell thousands of people who came to hear him speak that “a little rain never hurt anybody but we don’t want anybody struck by lightning.”

He asked people to return to their cars for safety.
