Storm Recovery - Trees & Power

Extensive storm damage left many downed trees and tree limbs and a large portion of the City of Des Plaines without power.  Beginning around 10pm last night, I toured the 3rd Ward making sure crews were addressing dangerous situations.  If you know of a situation that has yet to be addressed, please call one of the numbers below.  
Thank you to all the neighbors who pitched in, clearing roadways and helping remove debris from private property.  
As the cleanup progresses, please treat all power lines like they are live and dangerous.  Neighbors who have property damage should be sure to document all damage with pictures.  
Over 300,000 ComEd customers are without power.  Know that I am working with City Staff to ensure our 3rd Ward is brought back on line as soon as possible.  
Here are some useful phone numbers: 
All Emergencies: 911
Downed Power Line: 1-800-334-7661
Tree Branches: 847-391-5400
Alderman Bogusz: 847-514-6318
