DeKALB – A power outage that caused about 2,000 ComEd customers to lose power for more than an hour Tuesday was the result of a power line that came down, a spokesman for the utility said.
A power line connection near the intersection of Twombly Road and Rosenow Way on the northwest side of DeKalb failed, causing the outage about 8 p.m., ComEd spokesman Paul Callighan said.
“It wasn’t the weather, it just fell,” Callighan said. “At the connection point, the connection just failed and the wire came down.”
Power was restored to all customers by 9:15 p.m., Callighan said.
