Some portions of Wheaton have experienced storm damage as a result of a severe thunderstorm that came through Wheaton late this afternoon. Some areas are currently without power and/or have experienced damage from the storm.
If you see a downed power line, do not touch it or try to move it, and consider all downed lines as energized and extremely dangerous. Report downed power lines and any power outages to ComEd at 1-800-EDISON1 (800-334-7661).
All other emergency situations should be reported by calling 9-1-1. Wheaton’s Police and Fire Departments will respond.
In addition, due to power outages and current conditions, the City Council Planning Session originally scheduled for 7 p.m. Monday, Aug. 10, has been cancelled.
