CHICAGO — A ComEd spokeswoman said the company is prepared for Tuesday's expected storms, even though 11,500 Chicagoans were still without electricity Tuesday morning.
Monday's severe storms knocked out power to 300,000 people in northern Illinois at one point, ComEd spokeswoman Ashley Dennison said, though service to most of them had been restored.
Dennison said she could not estimate when power would be restored for the rest, but said the company was "working to restore power quickly and safely."
Amy Seeley, a National Weather Service meteorologist, said there was a "slight risk for severe thunderstorms" Tuesday but could not predict if storms would cause more outages.
Dennison, though, said ComEd was ready.
"We're geared up in storm mode to prepare for severe weather," Dennison said.
