Bolingbrook homes still without power after storms knock down trees, street signs

BOLINGBROOK – Monday evening's severe storm knocked down various tree limbs, street signs and power lines in Bolingbrook, but no injuries were reported, according to Bolingbrook Police Department.

About 5:40 p.m. Monday, a storm entered Bolingbrook, and weather spotters reported that winds as high as 70 miles per hour uprooted trees, knocked down branches, blew over fences and peeled shingles off at least one house, according to the National Weather Service.

The strong winds also blew over "large exit signs" on I-355 and I-55, according to the National Weather Service.

Additionally, power lines fell and blocked streets and sidewalks, police said, and electricity went out in several homes. As of 9 a.m. Tuesday, about 322 Bolingbrook homes were still without power, according to ComEd.

Currently, no injuries have been reported, according to Bolingbrook Police Lt. Mike Rompa.

Attempts to reach Bolingbrook Public Works Department were unsuccessful.
