Some damage, power outages in from Sunday storms

89,000 ComEd customers in northern Illinois had outages

STERLING — The Sauk Valley was spared, for the most part, from major damage from Sunday's storms.

A power line was downed by strong winds south of Rock Falls. In Lee County, there were reports of wires, limbs, and poles down, with one building damaged in Lee Center — part of an elevator complex.

The Ogle County Sheriff's Department received reports of as many as five semitrailers rolling over on Interstate 39, but no serious injuries were reported.

Storms that included several tornadoes in central Illinois brought heavy rains and strong winds to the Sauk Valley early Sunday afternoon.

ComEd was reporting Sunday evening that 89,000 of its customers in northern Illinois were without power, which includes 12,000 customers in Chicago. A ComEd represenative said that more localized numbers might not be available until today, but readers reported outages in parts of Dixon, as well as Harmon, Paw Paw, Grand Detour and Franklin Grove.
