July 13, 2017, 7:00 a​​m.

ComEd has been impacted by thunderstorms that passed through the territory. Approximately 77,000 customers have been impacted by this storm event and a little over 230 customers remain out of service. Our crews continue to work around the clock to restore service to the remaining customers experiencing isolated power outages due to significant localized damage.

Any outage is a frustrating situation, so we thank you for your understanding. We appreciate your patience as we work to restore power as safely and as quickly as possible.

Stay Safe: Heavy rainfall can cause flash flooding and flooded basements.

  • Customers should call ComEd at 1-800-EDISON-1 (1-800-334-7661) to disconnect power before entering a flooded basement.
  • Never wade into a flooded basement unless all electricity has been disconnected (such as power that supplies sump pumps, freezers, etc.). Water may be in contact with electrical outlets, appliances or cords.​

To stay informed about estimated restoration times, continue to check our Storm Center or follow us on Twitter and Facebook. If you have Outage Alerts, text STAT to 26633 for updated outage info or check the outage map.​​​
