NORTHWEST INDIANA - At one point in the later part of Tuesday afternoon at around 4 p.m. 14,000 people in Northwest Indiana were without power, both customers of NIPSCO and customers of  Kankakee Valley REMC.

NIPSCO Public Affairs Manager Dana Berkes told Lakeshore Public Radio the issue was at a substation.  She said all repair crews were sent to the scene to get customers restored as quickly as possible.  Repair crews had to switch the effected customers to another circuit.

NORTHWEST INDIANA- NIPSCO is still responding to the widespread power outages across Northwest Indiana and some may not see power restored until tomorrow (Thursday), according to the utility's website.

The outages are due to a second round of strong storms that came through northern Indiana mid-morning on Wednesday and the sustained high winds still in effect as of Wednesday afternoon after 2 p.m.
