CHICAGO (AP) -- Illinois' electricity providers are reporting scattered outages because of the cold, windy weather.

Ameren Illinois reports there are about 10,000 homes and businesses in the dark in central and southern Illinois on Monday morning. The highest concentration of outages is in the St. Clair County community of Fairview Heights in southwestern Illinois.

In Northern Illinois, ComEd says there are about 6,100 homes and businesses without power. More than half of those are in suburban Chicago's DuPage County.

A major winter storm and "polar vortex" brought snow to much of the state and is expected to drop temperatures to near-record lows.
