As of 8 a.m., 20,000 Commonwealth residential and businesses customers are without power in Northern Illinois, according to a ComEd Spokesman. About 2,100 of those customers are in the Palatine area.
“We have deployed crews, they are going to the areas impacted by the storm," said Tony Hernandez, ComEd Spokesman. "Once they get on site and determine whether they need to clear tree debris they will start restoring power as soon as possible.”
The northern region extends south to Wheaton, north to Zion, west to Crystal Lake and east to Highland Park and Evanston area.
ComEd crews will be working to restore power throughout the day and into the evening if needed, Hernandez said.
“It is unclear when power will be restored,” Hernandez said.
