Thousands lose power after storm

CHICAGO (AP) – A thunderstorm packing high winds and hail knocked out power to thousands of residents in northeastern Illinois and caused travel delays.

The National Weather Service reported wind gusts above 60 mph Friday, resulting in downed trees and power lines.

ComEd reports more than 90,000 customers in the area lost power. The utility said repair crews will be working through the night to repair the damage.

Chicago’s Aviation Department reports airlines operating in and out of O’Hare and Midway airports were experiencing delays of more than 30 minutes.

The weather service said some areas reported more than 2 inches of rain before the storm moved into northwest Indiana.
