Power Restored To Thousands in Northwest Indiana

SHARE Power Restored To Thousands in Northwest Indiana

Power has been restored to much of Northwest Indiana but there’s still a few thousand in the dark.

Less than 4000 customers of Northern Indiana Public Service Company are without electrical power, down considerably from the 58,000 a few days ago. But high winds are continuing to cause problems for the utility.

A spokesperson said Sunday’s high winds damaged transmission circuits in areas that had previously been restored. The hardest hit areas are in Crown Point and in Gary. Crews are working to restore power.

With a winter snow storm predicted to blanket the area with 3 to 6 inches by Wednesday, NIPSCO officials are hoping to be caught up with restoring customers by then.
