Exelon (EXC -3.5%) has shed 5.5% in the past two days after storms with hurricane force winds swept through Commonwealth Edison's territory in the central U.S., knocking out power to as many as 427K customers.

The National Weather Service says five tornadoes touched down in Illinois during storm.

Based on past storms of similar magnitude, EXC estimates remaining customers will have their service restored by late Thursday night, with the exception of some pockets in hardest hit areas.

In southeast Michigan, ~140K DTE Energy (DTE -1.6%) customers lost power at the height of the storm.
