Saturday’s storm may be behind us, but the remnants it left in its path will require especially cautious Halloween outings tonight.

With spotty power, fallen trees and downed wires, our streets are not as kid-friendly as they normally are this time of year — so it is important to keep those characters (even the ones with supernatural or superhero powers) away from danger zones.

Many affected streets around theLoop area are closed off to cars by yellow police tape. But safety officials say children walking tonight should stay off of them as well. The live wires drooping out there can be deadly. Do not touch them and keep the kids away.
