We're hearing from readers in Sheridan Park that there's a partial power outage affecting some of the homes and street lights. Apparently a very loud noise that some residents thought was a bullet shot happened shortly before 11pm.
"A tranformer just exploded in the alley between Clark and Dover and Wilson and Leland, knocking out power for as far as I can see in the neighborhood." Parts of Montrose, Lawrence, Dover, Beacon and the Sunnyside Mall area are without street lights, although some homes' exterior lighting is working.
ComEd is aware of the problem and is working on restoring power. If you must drive or walk tonight, be cautious!
