Did the entire town have a power outage at around 11:35 last night? I went outside and could hear a pin drop it was SO eerily quiet, and there was no lights anywhere as far as I could see except for car headlights. My sister-in-law told me the power goes out often in Lockport.....how often does this happen?

Also, does anyone know what caused the outage last night?

from what the rumor is, trout had his lover over last night. he brought a special gift for him. he told trout to bend over. thats when trout's lover opened up the newly bought, RAM 5000. he plugged it in, and i guess that's when poor ole lockport went dark

trout, instead of the the ram 5000, they should of called it the jack hammer. you need to put it on low when you start out.

There was a multi-car accident and one of the cars ran into the substation.

It was the sub-station by Gouger and Bruce.

So mainly the SW Lockport area

I called ComEd on my cell and they already had it listed as being restores ar 2am.

But they restored the power around 12:45am.

Thanks! I just thought it was weird that the power went out when there wasn't even a storm or high winds, or anything like that.
