About 3,600 people were without power in Michiana on Friday morning, Nov. 6.

Here’s the full list from Indiana Michigan Power as of 7:40 a.m.:

  • Grant County — 429
  • Madison County — 102

Because of the power outages, some traffic lights may also be flashing red, including the intersection of Lincolnway and Beech road in Osceola. Drivers should treat those intersections as four-way stop.

Heavy rain and winds rolled through Michiana overnight, but it’s not clear exactly what caused the power outages. Estimated restoration times are not known.
