Power restored to ComEd customers


The more than 1,800 ComEd customers in south Evanston now have their power back on after weather-related outages earlier this afternoon.

ComEd says there are no other outages in the city at the moment.

The temperature has inched up to what’s expected to be the high for the day of minus 11 degrees. It’s expected to drop to minus 20 overnight before rising almost to the zero mark during the day Thursday.

City Manager Wally Bobkiewicz says the Fire Department responded to 18 calls today. Public Works crews are working to repair frozen water service lines at a few private properties.

Evanston is expected to see two to three inches of snow tomorrow evening, and city plow crews have been scheduled to handle that.

Bobkiewicz says about 20 people participated in drop-in activities at the Levy Center and about 40 at the Fleetwood-Jourdain Community Center today. Most were middle school and high school students.
