Storms leave thousands without power

A strong line of thunderstorms that moved through northeast Indiana Wednesday afternoon resulted in power outages for many homes in the area, some of which won’t be restored until Thursday afternoon.

About 100 Indiana Michigan Power customers in Fort Wayne will likely not have power restored until mid-afternoon Thursday, officials said.

About 600 customers in the Butler and Avilla areas were expected to have power restored by noon today.

The outages ranged from Michigan to east-central Indiana and caused outages for about 10,300 I&M customers, nearly 7,000 of whom had power restored by 9 p.m. Wednesday, according to I&M.
