The hardest hit areas of Clinton, Greencastle, and Terre Haute experienced scattered outages July 24. Outages in other areas were restored earlier.
The problem with this storm is not so much the number of customers affected, but rather the unusually large number of individual problems, said Duke Energy Indiana President Jim Stanley.
This makes power restoration slower than normal. Weve made arrangements for 350 contractors to supplement our work force and speed up the restoration process.
Duke Energys Indiana operations provide approximately 7,300 megawatts of safe, reliable and competitively priced electricity to more than 780,000 electric customers, making it the states largest electric supplier.
