Large-Scale Power Outage Update

Updated at 8:30 a.m., November 27: Approximately 170 Deerfield customers remain without power, and restoration times are now being made available. Some customers who experienced the greatest damage and single-customer outages may take longer to regain power and extend into Wednesday and Thursday. ComEd expects that all customers will be restored by Thursday night. The Village continues to advocate for the quickest restoration possible.

Check your restoration status on ComEd's outage map here or you can text "STAT" to 26633 if you've signed up for ComEd's Outage Alerts. Text "ADD OUTAGE" to 26633 to sign up. This is a free text-alert notification system, message and data rates may apply.

ComEd crews are working around the clock to restore power and have brought in additional crews from across the country to assist with restoration efforts. The November 25 winter storm event caused over 350,000 customers to lose power in the ComEd service territory. Approximately 40,000 customers remain without power.
