As the storm rolled through Winnebago County this evening, strong winds accompanied the storm. Those storm winds knocked down large trees, blew out transformers, and brought some rain and a really neat lightning show. Several fans have sent us photos of the storm damage, we are posting on our Facebook Wall. So be sure to check that out
Comed is saying as of 10:30 pm tonight, there is almost 5,000 customers without power in Winnebago County. Almost 4,000 in Stephenson County, Almost 2,000 in Boone County and just over 1,000 in Ogle County.
Each power outage has a varied restore time frame. Some of those time frames are as long as 9 PM on Thursday night. Good thing I told everyone to prepare for some power outages, because they did happen. Comed assures everyone they have crews out working non-stop to recover their customers power. But asks for them to be patient, due to the amount of different outages they are working on.
NOTE: If there is a traffic signal that is out, treat it like a 4 way stop!
