LaPorte 6.26.13 2 WinCE
NIPSCO Crews making repairs in La Porte County Wednesday
Another round of strong storms brought additional power outages to the Region Thursday night, with the Highland, Hammond, Munster area especially hard hit. NIPSCO says an additional 28-thousand customers in their service territory lost electricity. Crews have been working around the clock making repairs since earlier this week, when 105-thousand customers were impacted by severe weather. Assessment teams were out last night, and NIPSCO says fallen trees had to be cleared from lines before significant power restoration efforts can ramp up early today [Friday morning.]
