REMC crews work to restore power

Statement issued about 10:45 a.m. Wednesday by Northeastern REMC:

Northeastern REMC crews worked through the night restoring power to the over 2300 members who lost service during yesterday’s winter storm. Two crews from Marshall County REMC arrived during the night to assist Northeastern in their efforts. As of 10 a.m. today, all but approximately 300 members had power.

According to Northeastern, the combination of high winds and wet snow, which built up to three inches around some power lines, created more damage throughout western Whitley County than the ice storm of 2008. Most of the restoration work focused on replacing broken poles and downed power lines.

Crews will continue working today until all members have electricity. They hope to have all services restored by mid-afternoon.

Northeastern REMC provides electricity to homes and businesses in portions of Allen, Whitley, Noble, Huntington, Wabash and Kosciusko Counties.
