Power restored to customers in Aurora

Updated: January 6, 2014 5:48PM

As of 5:30 p.m., the remaining 300 customers on Aurora’s Far East Side who were without power have had the power restored.

ComEd reports that all approximately 24,000 customers affected by today’s power outage in that area now have power again after the extremely cold weather knocked out electricity for thousands.

In fact, there were so many people without power earlier that Aurora police and fire officials were imploring residents not to call 911 for information on the power outage.
