ComEd Outages

According to representatives at ComEd, approximately 218 River Forest customers remain without power due to the storm on Tuesday, June 9, 2020. 1,035 customers have already been restored. ComEd crews continue to work to restore all customers. For updated information and numbers of outages, please view the ComEd Outage Status map.

Storm Damage

In the event a tree is damaged by storm activity, and for the first two weeks following a storm event, residents may place fallen tree limbs and branches that are four inches or greater in diameter, regardless of length, in the parkway to be collected by Village crews. All smaller materials (less than four inches in diameter) should be disposed of in the regular yard waste program utilizing yard waste bags or brush tags. Do not place these materials in the street. If it is not practical to prepare materials for collection under the regular yard waste program, residents may contact a tree care company or waste disposal company to arrange for a special collection of the material. All contractors must be licensed and bonded with the Village of River Forest.

Watch the Weather

Being prepared includes staying informed on the weather. Now more than ever before, residents are able to do this with weather apps that provide updates, websites, or even radio and television. Utilize a resource such as weather.com, the National Weather Service, the Chicago Tribune, or any other weather radar provider to stay in the know and stay prepared.
