We have several people out of power due to strong winds that snapped off at least 70 power poles overnight. We have crews dispersed to the scene. As of 5:30am this morning, Wayne-White still has 890 customers out of power, mostly in White County and Wayne County. The areas affected the most include the townships of Hawthorne, Indian Prairie, Phillips, Carmi, Keith, and Emma. Hoosier Energy has also sent three crews to assist Wayne-White lineman with the clean-up and power restoration. Thanks for your patience and please do not go near any downed power lines or poles. UPDATE: As of 11:00am, the number of customers without power has been reduced down to 587 meters still out. Please stay away from the affected areas and allow crews to do their job safely.
