Power outage update from Indiana Michigan Power

Indiana Michigan Power employees, contractors and mutual assistance crews will
continue working overnight to restore power after record-breaking winds Monday night disrupted power to 40,700 customers.

I&M has restored power to nearly 15,000 customers in less than 24 hours, with more than 25,900 customers without service as of 9 p.m. on Tuesday night. A majority of those customers are in the hard-hit southwest Fort Wayne and Waynedale areas.

On Wednesday, more than 900 I&M line workers, forestry experts, support crews, contractors and mutual assistance personnel will work together to restore power. Mutual assistance personnel are traveling from Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and Tennessee.

Crews will work long hours in the excessive heat to restore service to those affected by the
