The latest round of strong storms that rolled through the area in the early morning hours of July 28 knocked out power to about 2,800 customers in Brookfield, most of them in an area bounded on the east and west by Prairie and Kemman avenues and on the north and south by 31st Street and the Burlington Northern-Santa Fe Railroad tracks.

The latest power outage comes on the heels of a days-long outage for many residents following the storm on July 11.

“We know people are frustrated,” said Village Manager Riccardo Ginex. “What is this, four storms in four weeks? It’s crazy.”

The storm downed power lines at several locations in the village. An arcing wire started a garage fire in the 3800 block of Cleveland Avenue, and other arcing wires were reported down in the 9500 block of Garfield, the 3100 block of Cleveland and the 9300 block of Jefferson.

Strong winds also snapped at least three utility poles along the north side of the Burlington Northern right of way between Hollywood and Rosemear avenues, bringing down power lines with them.

According to Brookfield police, the poles snapped at their bases at about 1:50 a.m. on July 28.

Meg Reile, a spokeswoman for Metra, said the commuter rail agency was forced to close the Hollywood Metra stop on the north side of the tracks until about 6:30 a.m., but determined the poles didn’t pose a threat to train traffic.

Brookfield Public Works Department crews also had to contend with a large water main break at about 2:30 a.m. that same morning on Kemman Avenue. That break is not believed to be related to the storm, Ginex said.

The storm also sent the water level of the Des Plaines River back toward flood stage, cresting at 6.54 feet, about a half foot below flood stage, by Friday evening. As of Monday afternoon the water had receded further, to less than 5 feet.
