Power restored at New Haven schools

NEW HAVEN, Ind. (WANE) Three New Haven schools lost power Tuesday morning and the district was allowing parents to pick up students.

Tamyra Kelly with East Allen County Schools said power was out at New Haven primary, middle and high schools throughout the morning. Kelly said during the event, parents were picking up students and absences were excused.

The power was restored around 11:30 a.m.

During the power outage, students remained in the schools and were served lunch. Water was still on in the schools.

An I&M spokesman told NewsChannel 15 that about 3,300 customers were without power in and around New Haven. The outage began at 8 a.m. and was caused by a squirrel, not weather, he said.
