Ice Storm Warning: February 5-February 6

An Ice Storm Warning has been reported for Lake and Cook Counties from 6 p.m. tonight to 6 a.m. on Wednesday morning. Freezing rain and ice accumulations of 0.1" to 0.4" are expected.

Travel tonight into tomorrow morning will likely be very difficult and dangerous at times. Avoid any unnecessary travel during this time. If travel is required, use extreme caution and ensure that you are carrying emergency supplies in case you become stranded.

It is important to monitor the status and changes of the ice storm via weather broadcasts. 

Weather Report

Report Power Outages to ComEd

ComEd

With ice accumulation in the forecast, ComEd has increased staffing levels and is closely monitoring the system to address outages as quickly and safely as possible. 

In these severe conditions, ComEd is asking residents to report any outages or downed power lines immediately online, with the mobile app or via phone at 800.334.7661. Additionally, ComEd is asking that customers do not ever approach downed power lines or get too close to ComEd crews who may be working on live and hazardous electrical equipment.

In the event of a power outage, Village Hall and the Deerfield Police Department lobby (850 Waukegan Road) are available as warming shelters during business hours. After hours, the Police Department is available with limited services, but further warming shelter locations will be made available to those in need. 

Report Potholes with Request Tracker

Pothole

The drastic weather changes we are experiencing have created a freeze-thaw cycle, and Village streets may show pockets of distressed areas, or potholes.

Public Works crews are performing pothole maintenance this week, weather depending, and you can help the department keep our streets in good condition by reporting potholes via the Village's online Request Tracker here.

For more information, contact the Public Works Department at 847.317.7245.
