FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Strong storms overnight toppled trees and brought down power lines in some areas of northeast Indiana.

Several trees were reported down across roads throughout Allen County. A large tree blocked parts of Spy Run Avenue near State Boulevard before crews were able to cut it up and moved it off the road.

High winds brought trees down across some power lines. Spy Run Extended near Parnell Avenue was blocked by police due to down wires. West Whitley Street in Churubusco was also blocked off for down power lines.

Indiana Michigan Power, United REMC, and Northeastern REMC reported hundreds of power outages in Allen, Whitley, Huntington, Blackford, and Grant counties overnight. By 4 a.m., power had been restored to most customers.
