Two power outages on the North Shore and throughout Cook County have been confusing and perhaps frustrating for some local residents in recent weeks.

The first outage was Oct. 31, with the other occurring exactly one week later on Nov. 7.

The source or reason for the power outages remain unknown at this time.

However, WTIP wanted to hear from local officials familiar with the situation to learn more about these power outages and what to expect moving forward. WTIP’s Rhonda Silence spoke with Arrowhead Electric CEO John Twiest to find out more.
