ComEd Twitter account is full of answers trying to make residents feel as if someone was listening. However, many areas of energy, the truth is that it will take some time before power is restored to everyone.

If you are without power, ComEd encourages you to call 1800-Edison1 and report the incident. Twitter can also try them for advice, but only official calls to the main account of cuts will definitely be considered.
