CenterPoint: Power Restored to All Customers


Last Tuesday's storms knocked out electricity to 24,000 CenterPoint customers in SW IN

CenterPoint Energy says it restored power to all its customers over the weekend after a-half dozen tornadoes tore through southwest Indiana last Tuesday. WNIN's John Gibson has the update:

CenterPoint, contract crews, and other utility companies worked around the clock to get customers back on line.

CenterPoint reported a peak of 24,000 customers after Tuesday’s storms.

The weather service says four of the storms were strong EF-2 tornadoes and two of them were EF-1’s.

The agency says the storm system also packed straight-line winds of 70 to 90 mph.

The weather service recorded 78 miles of confirmed tornado track across the region.

The storms damaged homes and businesses, bought down trees and power lines, and left thousands of people without electricity.

There was no word of any serious injuries.
