UNDATED (AP) -- Repair crews are still working to restore power to thousands of utility customers in Illinois after the intense wind and thunderstorms that blew across the state.
About seven-thousand Com-Ed customers in northern Illinois are still without power this morning. And Com-Ed spokesman Jeff Burdick says more outages are expected as moderate winds could knock already-weakened branches onto power lines during the day.
In southern Illinois, Ameren spokesman Leigh Morris says crews are working to restore power to about 45-hundred customers in the Carbondale and Marion areas.
Today, temperatures are expected to drop into the mid-60s in northern Illinois as a cold front moves in from the northwest, eventually cooling off southern Illinois as well.
