All available NIPSCO crews, with assistance from support contractors from neighboring states, continue to respond to the effects of the severe weather, which carried wind gusts up to 86 miles per hour reported in some areas.
“This storm has posed a challenge for many of our communities, and our thoughts are with all those affected, especially those dealing with the effects of the Midwest tornadoes,” said Keith Wooldridge, NIPSCO’s senior vice president of field operations. “Because the damage is very widespread, we’ve brought in all available resources to address the repairs.”
Kankakee Valley REMC reports progress continues to be made across their service territory, with 110 outages remaining as of late Monday afternoon. Some outages are requiring additional time due to the severity of the damage. As crews work through the night, there will still be work continuing into today. Downed power lines are still being reported at some locations.
