Statement issued Friday:
Warsaw, Indiana…Over 2,000 Kosciusko REMC members have had their power restored as of
5 p.m. today. Less than 1,000 members are still without power, and efforts continue to restore service.
“We have crews out in force all over the country,” said KREMC Engineering and Operations Manager Bruce Goslee. “We’ll continue working this evening until everyone’s power is back.”
The power outages were caused by severe storms that hit Kosciusko County this afternoon. Gusts of wind up to 60 mph were reported as a result of the storm.
Kosciusko REMC is a Touchstone Energy electric cooperative serving over 17,000 customers throughout Kosciusko County and into surrounding counties.
