High winds cause issues in Putnam County over the weekend

Some of Putnam County as well as surrounding counties were in the dark Saturday afternoon after high winds damaged power lines. Duke Energy crews restored power to about 91 percent of Indiana customers who lost it as a result of strong winds on Saturday afternoon. Duke Energy expects all remaining outages to be restored by 6 p.m. Monday, though the vast majority of customers will be restored sooner. Duke Energy has supplemented its crews with hundreds of workers from nearby private companies and utilities from as far away as Michigan and Wisconsin. Duke also reported outages over the weekend in Kentucky and Ohio as well.
