A power outage Thursday night left at least 200 Oak Park customers in the dark at one point.

Reports came in to OakPark.com about 8:45 p.m. saying power was out at the 7-11 located at the corner of South Boulevard and Euclid Avenue, and also at the Oak Park Arms, 408 S. Oak Park Ave.

As of 12 a.m. Friday ComEd's power outage map reports less than five customers in Oak Park being affected by the outage. Late Thursday night ComEd had reported 196 Oak Park customers without power at 11:30 p.m. and 201 customers without power at 11 p.m.
