NIPSCO crews continue restoration efforts after Monday morning’s winter storm which caused significant damage and outages from heavy snowfall and winds in excess of 45 miles per hour.  Several hundred cases of downed lines, broken poles and equipment have been reported and identified. In total, more than 40,000 electric customers were affected. As of 5:00 p.m. Monday, approximately 6,800 customers remained without power – primarily located in Lake, Porter, and La Porte counties.
NIPSCO employees continued to work around-the-clock to respond to the damage, with the support of additional resources working in the call center and emergency command center to focus on power restoration efforts. Additional outside crews and resources were secured for added support.
