INDIANA (WANE) – Efforts continued Monday night to restore power to areas affected by Sunday’s severe storms.
As of Tuesday at 7 a.m., Indiana Michigan Power said it had restored power to 96 percent of customers who lost service during the storms.
About 800 customers were without power in Delaware County; about 300 in Blackford County; and about 100 in Jay County. Due to the number of broken poles and other equipment damage as well as the number of smaller, isolated outages, all but a small number of customers are expected to be restored by 6 p.m. Wednesday.
All customers in Allen, Steuben, DeKalb and Grant counties have been fully restored.
As I&M continues to restore power, the company reminds the public to never go near fallen power lines. If you encounter fallen wires, stay away from them and immediately contact I&M at 800-311-4634.
