Power outage overnight disrupts West Vigo students

WEST TERRE HAUTE — A power outage at West Vigo High School and middle school overnight Wednesday caused some disruption for students Thursday morning.

The outage was caused by a bad underground cable on the West Vigo campus, said Rick Burger of Duke Energy. The outage was not weather-related.

While power was restored to the high school by 5:30 a.m., it wasn’t restored to the middle school until noon, said Dan Tanoos, VCSC superintendent. That meant the middle school was without heat.

As a result, middle school students had classes at the high school, in a gym and some empty classrooms, Tanoos said.

After power was restored around noon, the middle school students went back to their building, which remained cool, but they could wear coats if they chose, he said.

The cafeteria was affected because it runs off the middle school’s electrical system, he said. School officials brought in hot sandwiches at breakfast and later provided sack lunches.
