As of midday today, about 13-thousand NIPSCO customers remained without power across Lake, Porter, LaPorte and Elkhart counties due to damage from Monday night's severe storms. That's down from 128-thousand total who were affected. The utility company anticipates restoring power to everyone by this evening or late tonight. Many of the outages are in the Region, including hard-hit areas around Gary, Hammond, Highland, Lake Station, Hobart, Crown Point, Lowell, Schererville, Portage, Michigan City and DeMotte. Extensive damage from this week’s storm included more than 130 broken distribution poles, tree damage and 580 reports of downed electric wire.
