Duke Energy: Indiana storm repairs continue

• Duke Energy has made good progress and has restored service to more than 96,000 Indiana customers. There were about 9,300 out of service as of 11 a.m. today.

• The majority of the customers without service are in the company’s Lafayette and Kokomo districts, where there was extensive damage. As an example, Duke Energy has to replace more than 100 utility poles damaged across those areas. In one location in Lafayette, 18 poles were destroyed and crews are rebuilding a line to a substation.

• The company expects to have power restored in the Lafayette and Kokomo areas by noon Wednesday, although many customers will have their power restored before then.

• Duke Energy has every available resource working on the outages — employees, contractors, and crews from its affiliate companies in Ohio and the Carolinas to help speed restoration. More than 1,000 crews are working in the field. That includes line workers and support personnel such as tree trimmers and damage assessors.

• Safety remains critically important during restoration efforts. Avoid downed power lines. They should be considered energized and dangerous. Call 911 and Duke Energy to report downed lines.

• On the roads, please slow down or move over if you see Duke Energy crews or emergency management crews working along the side the road. Help make sure the folks working to restore power finish the job and get home to their families safely.
