Just before 2 pm today there is a large power outage affecting the Machesney Park and Roscoe area. At the time of writing this, several traffic lights were out and even the Winnebago County Sheriff office was briefly without power near Machesney Park Mall. The cause of the power outage is not yet known. Still developing.
UPDATE as of 2:24 pm: Sounds like it might have been restored at the Sheriff Office. Those still without power, the estimated restore time is approx. 6 pm
