More than 40,000 powerless in Indiana

INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana’s major electric utilities are reporting more than 40,000 power outages around the state while temperatures plunge below zero.

The largest number of outages was in Indianapolis, where about 26,000 homes and businesses were reported without electricity Monday morning. A couple thousand outages each were reported in Adams County, the Terre Haute area and central Indiana’s Tipton County.

Besides the 1,950 outages Indiana Michigan Power reported in Adams County, the utility said there were 975 outages in Allen County and 243 in Wells County this morning.

Sunday’s heavy snowfall and strong winds gusting to 35 mph at times have caused many tree limbs to come down on power lines.

Numerous shelters have been opened around the state to assist those without power or stranded travelers.
