Power Outage Update
As of 12:30 p.m., ComEd reports that 4,736 customers in Lombard are without power, due to 111 separate outages. ComEd crews are working throughout the Village to fix downed and broken lines. At this time, ComEd is not providing an estimated time of restoration. Residents can check the status of outages in Lombard on ComEd’s website.
ComEd has shared the following information on their Facebook page: Our current estimate is that all customers will be restored by 3PM on Saturday, August 15. We recommend customers take whatever steps they feel necessary to keep themselves and their families safe during this time.
Based upon ComEd protocols, restoration will be prioritized for high risk customers including hospitals, nursing homes, medical care facilities and multi-family units. The majority of Lombard’s residential outages affect single family homes, which may take second priority in this emergency situation.
