South suburbs soaked by storm; thousands without power

Chicago's south suburbs may have been hardest hit by Monday night's storm.

As many as 115,000 electric customers lost power.

Matteson police and fire departments were running on generator power.

Hundreds of businesses in the area were in the dark.

Seven-hundred Comed repair crews are working to restore power,  but officials say it will take at least a few days to get all the power back.
