NIPSCO: Restoring power could take days

According to NIPSCO spokesperson Nick Meyer, the restoration time for NIPSCO customers in the Goshen and greater Elkhart County without power will be a “multi-day effort.”

The number of customers without power were at 53,000 Tuesday evening, down from 121,000 customers from Tuesday morning. As crews assess the severity of damage, they will get a clearer picture of restoration times for customers, he added.

There are outside sources being utilized from Indiana, Mississippi, Illinois, and Ohio.

“The crews will continue to work in a nonstop effort until all customers have their power restored,” Meyer said.

According to Goshen Street Commissioner Denny Long, there were still some streets blocked Tuesday afternoon after the early morning storms.

The streets include the 1500 block of West Clinton Street, and Berkey Avenue between Indiana Avenue and Dewey Avenue.

“There are wires wrapped around trees on these streets and Northern Indiana Public Service Co. (NIPSCO) workers are working to clear the wires,” Long said. “When the NIPSCO workers are done, then we can go in and clear the streets. Until then, people will have to be patient.”
