McHenry County residents still affected by power outages

The storm has passed, but the wrath of this week's weather is still being felt in McHenry County by about 97 ComEd customers without power, according to an outage map on the company's website.

As of 6 a.m. Tuesday, 165,000 customers had their power restored, leaving 214,000 people without.

"There were a total of about 382,000 people that were impacted from yesterday's storms," Krissy Posey said.

Of the 214,000 who have yet to have power restored, about 180,000 of those people are in the southern region of ComEd's 11,000-square-mile territory. About 2,400 are in the north, 15,200 in the west, and 16,800 are in the Chicago area.

Posey said there are more than 1,000 ComEd and mutual assistance crews currently working to restore power for all customers, but she added it's too early to tell when exactly people can expect their lights back on.
