On Tuesday, June 25, 2013, ComEd employee Brian Malloy tells Pat Dobner what there is to know about restoring power to her home at 438 S. Peck Ave. La Grange and those of her neighbors. A storm with high winds severely damages a tree in Gheorghe Trifon's backyard at 349 S. Gilbert Ave. in La Grange. The tree fell on his garage and is resting on power lines, tripping a fuse that took out power in several blocks north and south around 5:00 p.m. on Monday, June 24, 2013. At noon, Tuesday, June 25, Goodman Avenue is blocked off between Gilbert and Peck Avenues. (Bill Ackerman photo)
