Lingering Power Outages from Storm

(La Porte County, IN) - There were still some power outages in the area from Monday's storm.


According to NIPSCO, more than 60 customers were still without service this morning in Michigan City, but service had been restored to all customers in La Porte.


In Knox, NIPSCO reported just over 700 customers still without power this morning. In addition, over 1,000 NIPSCO customers in La Porte and Knox were without power yesterday afternoon.


The La Porte County Highway Department reports about two dozen calls about fallen trees and limbs taken during and after the storm.


Highway Department Superintendent Duane Werner said it took his crews about three hours to remove the fallen trees and limbs from roadways. He said the focus today would be cleaning up the debris left by the fallen trees and limbs.


"We'll pretty much have all hands on deck cleaning all of the debris up," Werner said.

About a half dozen trees were discovered down in the city of La Porte, said La Porte Code Enforcement Director Jeff Batchelor. Batchelor said the fallen trees were in areas like Patton Cemetery and Division Road.
