The NIU campus is operating normally.

The power surges have also caused several severe weather sirens in DeKalb to be activated. Local police say the activation of the severe weather sirens was a result of the power surges and not due to any emergency situation.

ComEd crews are in the area and are working to address the intermittent power surge issues.
