UPDATE Monday June 29th: The power has been restored. 

Several hundred people are currently without power in our listening area due to the powerful storms that hit late on Friday night.

According to the ComEd power outage map, many different areas throughout Grundy County are without power due to down power lines and poles and trees that have fallen on wires.

The Gardner Fire Protection District on their Facebook page posted that Route 47 is closed from Gardner Road to West Prairie Road due to gusty winds knocking over power lines and poles.

ComEd said the repairs could be sometime today. Please avoid the area and find alternate routes for travel.
