Senator Bush speaks with neighbors as they survey storm damageGRAYSLAKE — State Senator Melinda Bush issued the following statement after a severe storm damaged structures Sunday night throughout the Round Lake area, Hainesville, Grayslake, Wildwood and Gurnee, including her home:

“Elected officials and agencies throughout Lake County are working together on storm damage assessments and power restoration for thousands of Lake County residents,” said Senator Melinda Bush (D-Grayslake). “Across the county, neighbors are helping neighbors, cleaning up trees and debris. We’re seeing a spirit of cooperation that will help piece together some of what was lost in this storm.”

Lake County EMA Coordinator Kent McKenzie said damage assessment continues with other organizations to quickly address residents’ needs.

“We're coordinating with the municipalities and townships that were affected, we're conducting that damage assessment to see what the needs are, and we're working to get ComEd accurate information so they can quickly restore power to those without it, and we're also in touch with human services like the Red Cross to assist those without insurance or other means to get their property repaired,” McKenzie said Monday morning.

Senator Bush encourages anyone who is having trouble getting the storm assistance they need to contact her District Office at (847) 548-5631, or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
