With power out in parts of Oak Park this morning, the village’s YMCA, 255 S. Marion, was forced to shut its doors for the day.

The Y sent out a notice this morning, saying that it was locking up and canceling its day camp and classes for the day, “for the safety of our members and staff.”

They sent out an update at 5:20 p.m., announcing “LET THERE BE LIGHT!” as the power had returned. But because of the “logistics” of cooling the building and warming up the pool, the Y will remain closed until 5 a.m. on Tuesday morning.
