Overnight storms cause power outages

ANDERSON, Ind. — Storms rolled through the Madison County area late Tuesday night delivering high winds, heavy rain, lightning and multiple power outages.

According to Anderson Municipal Light and Power Superintendent Tom Donoho, “a bunch of different ones” caused by lightning and heavy winds were scattered throughout the city overnight.

The largest outage, impacting about 1,200 customers, struck around 2 a.m. on the far westside of Anderson.

It was then that a tree came across a three-phase power line at the Park Road East circuit and caused the blackout, Donoho said.

Customers were without power until about 5 a.m. as light and power employees worked to restore it.

Late Wednesday afternoon, assistant spokesman Rodney Connor said the Madison County Emergency Management Agency hadn’t received any reports of damage.

With more severe weather forecast for the rest of the week, Donoho said workers are ready to go.

Strong to severe storms with the potential for flash flooding, damaging winds, large hail, lightning, torrential rainfall and isolated tornadoes are predicted to hit the East Central Indiana region throughout the rest of the week until Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.

A flash flood watch is in effect for Madison County until Thursday afternoon.
