About 2,527 Indiana Michigan Power customers are without power Tuesday afternoon.

One power outage is on the south side of South Bend, near Riley High School. A crossing arm broke and a wire is down, according to I&M spokeswoman Erica Putt.

Power is expected to be restored by 4:30 p.m.


A second, smaller power outage is affecting about 126 customers on the north side of South Bend because of a crash near the Indiana Toll Road, Putt said. Power should be restored there by 8:30 p.m.
