ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- In Rockford, more than 9,000 ComEd customers lost power. Approximately 5,200 customers have been restored since the beginning of the storm and 3,800 remain without power.

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.
