UPDATE (WIFR) -- As of 8:00 p.m. ComEd is reporting 2,700 homes and businesses are still in the dark. More than 430 ComEd crews are working to restore power and most customers should have their lights back on sometime Wednesday. ComEd officials say there could be some isolated cases were customers may not get their power restored until Thursday.
To report an outage, you can text "out" to 2-6-6-3-3 (ComEd) Or call 1-800-edison-1.
ComEd has mobilized more than 430 ComEd and contract crews to restore power as quickly and safely as possible to those affected. In addition, ComEd has dispatched two Mobile Operating Centers (MOC) to Rockford and Matteson to help speed restoration efforts. The unit, which can house 25 ComEd engineers, dispatchers and other key storm response team members, comes fully equipped with the latest communications, satellite and video conferencing technology. The MOC brings ComEd closer to its customers in times of severe weather and damage to the system. This will optimize restoration efforts, allowing ComEd to understand and respond to customer needs faster.
